Who, if I cried out, would hear me among the angelicorders? and even if one of them pressed mesuddenly to his heart: I'd be consumedin that overwhelming existence. For beauty is nothingbut the beginning of terror, which we can just barely endure,and we stand in awe of it as it coolly disdainsto destroy us. Every angel is terrifying.-from "The First Elegy"Over the last fifteen years, in his two volumes of New Poems as well as in The Book of Images and Uncollected Poems, Edward Snow has emerged as one of Rainer Maria Rilke's most able English-language interpreters. In his translations, Snow adheres faithfully to the intent of Rilke's German while constructing nuanced, colloquial poems in English. Written in a period of spiritual crisis between 1912 and 1922, the poems that compose the Duino Elegies are the ones most frequently identified with the Rilkean sensibility. With their symbolic landscapes, prophetic proclamations, and unsettling intensity, these complex and haunting poems rank among the outstanding visionary works of the century. criticism and theory,education and reference,european,german,history and criticism,humanities,literature,literature and fiction,poetry,reference Education & Reference, North Point Press

Details of the book
Duino Elegies: A Bilingual Edition

Thus begins the first movement of Rainer Maria Rilke's Duino Elegies. Started in a period of spiritual crisis in 1912 and completed in a second burst of inspiration in 1922, these ten loosely connected lyrics have come to define the Rilkean sensibility. With their symbolic landscapes, vatic pronouncements, complex tropes, and often haunting intensity, the Elegies rank among the outstanding visionary works of the century.<P>Edward Snow, whom Denise Levertov called "far and away Rilke's best contemporary translator", offers his versions of these challenging, provocative poems, which should serve as the authoritative translation for years to come.
