Description:

German poet Rainer Maria Rilke(1875-1926) enjoys ever-increasing popularity. His Duino Elegies is considered on of the greatest long poems of the twentieth century. Yet translations from his native German have always presented challenges: the elusiveness of Rilke's imagery, the playful way he both distorts and subverts his own language, and the depth and complexity of his poetry make it difficult for translators to preserve the beauty and meaning of the original text. In his stunning bilingual selection that includes the entire Duino Elegies as well as a number of favorite and less familiar shorter poems, Galway Kinnell and Hannah Liebmann manage to retain power and grace of Rilke's words. Throughout his poetry, Rilke addresses questions of how to live in and relate to a world in a voice that is simultaneoulsy prophetic and intensely personel. These translations offer new insight into this enigmatic German poet whose work will continue to be read and admired throughout the world.

Galway Kinnell was born on February 1, 1927 in Providence, Rhode Island. After earning his B.A. from Princeton University and his M.A. from the University of Rochester, Kinnell served in the U.S. Navy. Subsequently, he taught writing at many schools around the world, including universities in France, Australia, and Iran, and served as director of the creative writing programs at SUNY Binghamton and New York University. In addition to enriching the American literary landscape as a teacher, Kinnell has been a poet for more than 35 years. Although at first his poems were very traditional, his later poetry was written with a more free-style approach. Kinnell's poetry is drawn from his own experience and from his inner self. He speaks of nature and man's relationship, death and living, and the experiences one gains from being alive. Kinnell's 12th collection of poems is entitled Imperfect Thirst; other collections include When One has Lived a Long Time, The Book of Nightmares, and Walking Down the Stairs. A former MacArthur Fellow, Kinnell won the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry in 1983. He has also won the American Book Award and has served as the State Poet of Vermont.
