This review is from: Sonnets to Orpheus (Paperback)
In choosing books presenting the poetry and prose of Rainer Maria Rilke, one must discover which translations have most rewarded one over the years, or conversely, have most disappointed one. The "Sonnets to Orpheus" are truly lyrical, and this translation captures that well!

5.0 out of 5 stars New Translation of Old Favorite, 7 Jan 2013
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sonnets to Orpheus (Paperback)
Rilke's poetry is as valid today as when it was written, and this translation makes it easy to understand and beautiful to read. Sampled a poem at a time daily, this book is like a instant refreshment for the spirit.
