Great Works: Duino Elegies and The Sonnets to Orpheus by Rainer Maria Rilke
Rainer Maria Rilke, in any estimation, rises quickly to the very top rank of German-language poets. In this conversation with Dr. Alan Keele, we learn about Rilke's oeuvre in general, but also specifically about his Sonnets to Orpheus. Also, we entertain a comparison between the poetics of Rilke and the poetics of one of Rilke's translators, the late Leslie Norris.—Original airdate: 2/2/2009
