Rilke: New Poems [Paperback]

By Rainer Maria Rilke
Translated by Joseph Cadora
Foreword by Robert Haas

"Essential for all poetry collections. . . . Translator Joseph Cadora renders a beautiful new edition complete with commentary on each poem, based on Rilke's letters, numerous biographies, and related works as well as an introduction outlining his approach to the translation." -Library Journal, starred review

"[The] renderings of the canonical poems, such as "The Panther," "Orpheus, Eurydice, Hermes," and "Archaic Torso of Apollo" (to name a few), are worthwhile additions to the enormous body of Rilke's work already translated by others." -Booklist
