Rainer Maria Rilke developed one of the most singular poetic styles of the twentieth century. Visionary yet always anchored in the real world, his poems give profound expression to fundamental questions of love and death, of the chaos of the modern world as well as the spiritual consolation of art and nature.

Change Your Life draws from across Rilke's career to offer a comprehensive view of his most essential poetry, featuring major selections from the great Duino Elegies and Sonnets to Orpheus alongside less frequently anthologised work. In these dazzling new translations by acclaimed poet Martyn Crucefix, Rilke's poems beguile with fresh insight and mystery.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Crucefix's translation will have, and keep, a place on my shelves where all the poetry lives - Philip Pullman, on Martyn Crucefix’s translations of the 'Sonnets to Orpheus'

Crucefix's version is substantial, powerful and necessary work. Readers may well fall in love with parts of it and regard the Crucefix Rilke as their life partner - George Szirtes, on Martyn Crucefix’s translations of the 'Duino Elegies'
