Rilke's "Sonnets to Orpheus" appear simple, even casual, at first reading, but have a content which resonates far beyond the familiar legend of Orpheus and Eurydice. They take in the Singing God and his beloved Eurydice; "legend" in general, along with "time", "flight" and "change"; architecture, music and dance; animals, plants, flowers and fruits. The ten letters to the officer-cadet Franz Xavier Kappus, were written between 1903 and 1908.

Review:

"[Edward Snow] has emerged as Rilke's outstanding English-language interpreter . . . [He] is doing important work. Robert Lowell once wrote that it was hard to imagine Rilke first written in English, that the poems were sealed in German. Snow is unsealing them." -- Robert Phillips, "Houston Chronicle

About the Author:

RAINER MARIA RILKE (1875-1926) is widely regarded as the greatest German language poet since Goethe. Rilke worked for some time as Rodin's secretary at Meudon, and the sculptor's example lies behind the `new' bias of the poems of 1907 and 1908. These Neue Gedichte-the New Poems-are among the most accessible works by this outstanding lyric poet.
