Rainer Maria Rilke’s The Duino Elegies

Other translations suggested by Bill Ellis include:

  1. The Duino Elegies by Rainer Maria Rilke translated by J.B. Leishman and Stephen Spender

  2. The First and Second Duino Elegies by Rainer Maria Rilke translated by Stephen Mitchell

  3. The Third Duino Elegy by Rainer Maria Rilke translated by Stephen Mitchell

On the fidelity of various translations: In February, 1924, Rilke wrote the following in the copy of The Duino Elegies he gave to his Polish translator:
.
Happy are those who know:
Behind all words, the Unsayable stands;
And from that source alone, the Infinite
Crosses over to gladness, and us –
.
Free of our bridges,
Built with the stone of distinctions;
So that always, within each delight,
We gaze at what is purely single and joined.
