Librarian's note: It's really rather naughty of Dover to republish and carefully expunge any information about the original publication. This particular edition was originally published by the University of California Press in 1961.
A line of text is missing from the third stanza of the second Elegy at the top of p. 14.
The great German poet regarded these meditations on love, death, God, and life's meaning as his greatest achievement. Innovative and enigmatic, the enduringly popular elegies express Rilke's longing for solitude and his painful loneliness. These excellent translations are both true to the originals and poetic in their own right.

Read information about the authorRainer Maria Rilke is considered one of the German language's greatest 20th century poets.
His haunting images tend to focus on the difficulty of communion with the ineffable in an age of disbelief, solitude, and profound anxiety — themes that tend to position him as a transitional figure between the traditional and the modernist poets.
He wrote in both verse and a highly lyrical prose. His two most famous verse sequences are the Sonnets to Orpheus and the Duino Elegies; his two most famous prose works are the Letters to a Young Poet and the semi-autobiographical The Notebooks of Malte Laurids Brigge.
He also wrote more than 400 poems in French, dedicated to his homeland of choice, the canton of Valais in Switzerland.
