Named after the Castle of Duino on a rocky headland of the Adriatic, the "Duino Elegies" speak in a voice that is both intimate and majestic on the mysteries of human life and our attempt, in the words of the translator, "to use our self-consciousness to some advantage: to transcend, through art and the imagination, our self-deception and our fear".

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.
