[EAN: 9780865475137], Neubuch, [PU: North Point Press], RAINER MARIA RILKE,EDWARD SNOW,WORLD LITERATURE, Poetry|General, Paperback. 288 pages. Dimensions: 8.9in. x 6.0in. x 0.8in.Between the New Poems of 1907 and 1908 and his death in 1926, Rainer Maria Rilke published only two major volumes of poetry--the Duino Elegies and the Sonnets to Orpheus, both in 1923. But during this period he was writing verse continually, often prolifically--in letters, in guest books, in presentation copies, and chiefly in the pocket-books he always carried with him. This body of uncollected work exceeds five hundred pieces: finished poems of great poise and brilliance, headlong statements that hurtle through their subjects, haunting fragments, and short bursts that arc into the unpursuable. A remarkable number of them are among Rilkes finest poems. Snows selection of more than a hundred of these little-known works distills the best of the uncollected poetry while offering a wide enough choice to convey Rilkes variety and industry during the years he wrote them. Uncollected Poems will lead students, scholars, and other readers to a fresh--and more accurate--understanding of this great poets life and work. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN.

[EAN: 9780865475137], Neubuch, [PU: North Point Press, United States], Poetry|General, Language: German . Brand New Book. Between the New Poems of 1907 and 1908 and his death in 1926, Rainer Maria Rilke published only two major volumes of poetry - the Duino Elegies and the Sonnets to Orpheus, both in 1923. But during this period he wrote poetry continually, often prolifically - in letters, in guest books, in presentation copies, and chiefly in the pocket-books he always carried with him. The body of this uncollected work in German exceeds five hundred pieces, a remarkable number of which must be counted among Rilke s finest poems. They range from finished poems of great poise and brilliance, to headlong statements that hurtle through their subjects, to hauntingly self-contained fragments, to short bursts that arc into the unpursuable. Together they share a nakedness and an immediacy of voice that make them feel uncannily contemporary and draw the reader close. Edward Snow s selection of more than a hundred of these little-known and neglected poems - the first edition of such scope for the general reader - distills the best of the uncollected poems while offering a wide enough choice to convey Rilke s variety and industry during the years he wrote them.

Edward Snow has done the poetry-reading world a tremendous service in translating and collecting these previously obscure pieces of Rainer Maria Rilke's. The poems were written late in Rilke's career, and continue his lifelong concerns with the deepest and subtlest questions of being. Beautiful and lyrical writing fills these pages, as in this untitled poem, written in Paris in March, 1913: "We don't know what we spend: / all that's named is past and each being / invents itself at the last second / and will hear nothing ... german,literature and fiction,poetry,world literature Poetry, North Point Press
