Poems

Rainer Maria RILKE (1875 - 1926), translated by Jessie LEMONT (1862 - 1947)

A concise collection of poems translated from the great German poet Rilke into formal English verse. Although the translation may be freer than some modern texts, this selection, which spans early and later writings and includes a preface refreshingly focused on the poet's artistic development, provides a nice entrée into Rilke's world.
