For those who don't read German...
Mitchell's translations are just astonishing in their ability to capture the flow and rhythm of Rilke's language. Side-by-side texts, so you can compare and contrast; and a fine introduction by Robert Hass, that sums up the particular appeal of this very particular poet.
Rating: 9/10
