Uncollected Poems

Uncollected Poems

Farrar, Straus and Giroux
North Point Press

Edward Snow's selection of more than one hundred of Rilke's little-known and neglected poems offers the reader a glimpse into one of the most powerful and underrated accomplishments in all of modern poetry. These poems reveal a freer, more dangerous, less self-fashioning Rilke than the poet of the Elegies and the Sonnets; and Snow's translations of them, while always scrupulously faithful to the German, bring Rilke's power and music into English with unmatched grace and intelligence.
