The Voices & Other Poems

The Voices & Other Poems

By Rainier Maria Rilke
Translated by Kristofor Minta

"[Rilke's] work has taught me what real art ought to be; how it can matter to a life through its lifetime; how commitment can course like blood through the body of your words until the writing stirs, rises, opens its eyes…"—William H. Gass

Longlisted for the 2022 PEN Award for Poetry in Translation

In The Voices, Rilke presents a series of portraits of pariahs, outcasts, the down-and-outs, turning his often inward gaze toward The Other in a way that pleasantly undermines our notions of his poetic interests. In this new translation, Kristofor Minta breathes new life into these poems, which exude a kind of heat, if only enough to warm your hands by. Includes the original German on facing pages.

This book was produced in collaboration with Lamplight Editions.
