This bilingual edition offers twenty-first century readers a new opportunity to experience the power of Rilke's enduring masterpiece.

Perhaps no cycle of poems in any European language has made so profound and lasting an impact on an English-speaking readership as Rilke's Duino Elegies. These luminous new translations by Martyn Crucefix make it marvellously clear how the poem is committed to the real world observed with acute and visionary intensity.

Completed in , the same year as the publication of Eliot's The Waste Land, the Elegies constitute a magnificent godless poem in their rejection of the transcendent and their passionate celebration of the here and now.

He dedicated himself exclusively to his work, including the New Poems - 8 , the semi-autobiographical novel The Notebooks of Malte Laurids Brigge , Duino Elegies and Sonnets to Orpheus His translation of Rilke's Duino Elegies Enitharmon, was shortlisted for the Corneliu Popescu Prize and chosen by the novelist Philip Pullman as one of his 40 favourite books.

Having read two translations of Duino Elegies by Stephen Mitchell and Edward Snow, I definitely think that Snow has the first half right while Mitchell the second half. I still have a hard time understanding some of the elegies 3, 5, 6, 10 , but the ones I think I understand really ring true and strike the right chord, so to speak, in delineating the transience of human desire.

My absolute favorites are the First, Second, and Ninth Elegy. It just can't get better than that. There's not much Good!

There's not much else to say but that I need to come back again and again and spend more time with each elegy to decoct, glean, and soak up Rilke's incredibly condensed, profound, and at the same time elusive verse.

It's amazing poetry, and as such, it takes time to really understand it in your own way, at least , absorb it, and make it your own. Will be reading again. View 1 comment. Ve ne lascio un pezzettino. Ma chi, se gridassi, mi udrebbe, dalle schiere degli Angeli? I read these I think around the age of 23, when I had my first true existential crisis.

I was reading anything and everything I could find that mentioned death, mortality, the pain of existence, etc. I moved from the world of art to the world of psychology, in a sense, and Rilke has always exemplified to me one who is at once artist, philosopher, psychologist, spiritualist. His work vibrates with both the ethereal beauty and searing pain of life. I should read this again. Ya tocaba. Lots of analysis has been provided about these poems - but personally I was blown away by the lyricism of the lines.

This is a great translation, and the notes at the back deepened my understanding. I can't write it better than this editorial review. Read on. Rilke was staying at a castle Duino on the sea near Trieste.

One morning he walked out on the battlements and climbed down to where the rocks dropped sharply to the sea. If I cried out, who would hear me up there, among the angelic orders?

He wrote these words, the opening of the first Duino Elegy, in his notebook, then went inside to continue what was to be his major work and one of the literary masterpieces of the century. Y ahora, la tercera vez que leo a Rilke puedo decir que me ha llegado profundamente, que tiene versos de eso que se graban en tu memoria y aparecen en cualquier momento.

This is absolutely gorgeous! Plumbing life to all its depths. Recognizing our solitariness, yet standing in wonderment at the physical world which is so often overlooked. Extolling the "here and now" as heaven on earth almost a century before Eckhard Tolle.

Not all elegies resonated equally with me, but some phrases were so moving and affirming and thought-provoking that it was a joy to read. Definitely one to re-read again with equal attention. I loved the joy of the 7th! Who knew that poets were interested in physics? Rilke is absolutely one of my favorite poets. I like the sixth elegy best of all What more do you need. I'm not a fan of poetry, but am a fan of Rilke.

So I enjoyed this one. And its a classic. Wer, wenn ich schriee, denn aus der Engel Ordnungen? Who indeed? Readers also enjoyed. About Rainer Maria Rilke. Rainer Maria Rilke. Rainer Maria Rilke is considered one of the German language's greatest 20th century poets.
