Rainer Maria Rilke's "Sonnets to Orpheus", first published in German in 1923, has been hailed by critics as some of the finest lyrical verse of the twentieth century. Rick Anthony Furtak's translation of this legendary collection is the first edition for an English-speaking audience to situate the poems in a philosophical context, lending unexpected depth and a fresh perspective to Rilke's magnum opus. Furtak's rich translations skillfully evoke the haunting, enigmatic nature of these poems that bridge the gap between the romantic and the modern, as his introduction guides the reader through the abundant mystical and spiritual insights to be found in Rilke's sonnets. This new edition of a literary masterpiece will be essential reading for anyone interested in the philosophical implications of verse.
