5.0 étoiles sur 5Maybe, probably, the most important poet of the 20th Century.18 mai 2013
Par DB Donaldson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Why I have not read Rilke until late in life I can not say. But, I can say I'm very glad I finally did. Clear, cool, transcendently beautiful. Give yourself a wonderful present; Rainer Maria Rilke

Beautiful text. And arrived in perfect condition. Mystic poetry from a master of writing about emptiness, solitude, and the agony of attempting otherwise.

Stephen Mitchell delivers another beautiful translation. An absolutely breathtaking book that I couldn't put down, especially when every angel is terrifying

4.0 étoiles sur 5Fantastic translation, but meek reading5 décembre 2007
Par Esther - Publié sur Amazon.com
Mitchell's translation takes on the complexities of Rilke and somehow manages to render them elegantly, effectively and without sacrificing clarity. But his reading! He sounds like a Disney mouse trebling and whimpering through his own fantastic translation, which is a disappointment, given how powerful it is. Still, this is a great asset; I recommend highly. It is amazing to listen to the words as spoke from as close to the poet as one can reach, and once you get past the weak performance, the poetry is ringing.

5.0 étoiles sur 5Easily the best English version20 novembre 2013
Par Russ at Village Green - Publié sur Amazon.com
Far from perfect, this remains the one translation of the Elegies and Sonnets into English that is consistently viable and readable and manages to communicate some sense of the original.
