"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
