Riassunto: Poetry. Rainer Maria Rilke, along with Yeats, Mandelstam, and Pessoa, is regarded as one of the great European poets of his century, and by many as the outstanding German poet between Holderlin and Celan. DUINO ELEGIES is Rilke's masterpiece. This cycle of poems, language grasped at its speech-seed, was composed in a three-week blaze of creative energy in 1922, the annus mirabilis which saw the first publication of The Wasteland, Ulysses, and Pound's early Cantos. Rilke, the Santa Claus of loneliness, in Auden's cheeky phrase, said that the elegies were dictated to him, entrusted to him. Of all English versions of Rilke's elegaic symphony, these by the German scholar and poet Patrick Bridgwater may well incarnate the deepest reconciliation of that necessarily warring menage a trois: beauty, truth, and fidelity.
Dall'editore: David Oswald (b. 1953) is finishing his training in analytical psychology at the C.G. Jung Institute in Zrich, Switzerland, where he has been living for the past eight years. Raised in Owatonna, Minnesota, he has degrees in German from the University of Kansas and Mathematics from the University of Minnesota.
