Description: After nearly a lifetime of reading Rilke in English, William Gass took up the task of translating Rilke's work in order to see if he could, in that way, get a little closer to the work he so deeply marveled at and admired. With his background in philosophy, it seemed natural that Gass would emphasize Rilke's ideas, and so he decided to begin with the Duino Elegies in which Rilke's ideas are most clearly placed. The Elegies are important not only as one of the supreme poetic achievements of the West, but also because of the way in which they came to be written -- in an inspirational storm.

Gass examines the genesis of the ideas that inform the Elegies. He writes about Rilke's character, his life, his relationships. He analyzes Rilke's poems including the ten Duino Elegies, and their various translations. And finally Gass gives us his own extraordinary translation of the Elegies.
