Description
The eighty-four poems included in this small volume will serve as a sound and inviting introduction to Rilke's strategies in the pursuit of "being." And just as the unicorn in "This Is the Creature" has an eternal "possibility of being" but only becomes visible in the mirror held by a virgin, so can our own possibilities become manifest in the mirror held by the sensitive artist. The poems are chosen fromThe Book of Hours (1899-1903),The Book of Images (1902 and 1906),New Poems (1907 and 1908),Requiem (1909),Duino Elegies (1923),Sonnets to Orpheus (1923), and the posthumousPoems 1906-26. This selection was made by Professor Theodore Ziolkowski of Princeton University, who drew from the various New Directions volumes of Rilke's work translated by J. B. Leishman.
