The Notebooks of Malte Laurids Brigge (Penguin Classics)

Rilke, Rainer Maria Author

Image Not Available

A masterly new translation of one of the first great modernist novels In the only novel by one of the German language's greatest poets, a young man named Malte Laurids Brigge lives in a cheap room in Paris while his belongings rot in storage. Every person he sees seems to carry their death with them, and with little but a library card to distinguish him from the city's untouchables, he thinks of the deaths, and ghosts, of his aristocratic family, of which he is the sole living descendant. Suffused with passages of lyrical brilliance, Rilke's semi-autobiographical novel is a moving and powerful coming-of-age story.

From the Inside Flap:

This is the definitive, widely acclaimed translation of the major prose work of one of our century's greatest poets -- "a masterpiece like no other" (Elizabeth Hardwick) -- Rilke's only novel, extraordinary for its structural uniqueness and purity of language. First published in 1910, it has proven to be one of the most influential and enduring works of fiction of our century.

Malte Laurids Brigge is a young Danish nobleman and poet living in Paris. Obsessed with death and with the reality that lurks behind appearances, Brigge muses on his family and their history and on the teeming, alien life of the city. Many of the themes and images that occur in Rilke's poetry can also be found in the novel, prefiguring the modernist movement in its self-awareness and imagistic immediacy.

From the Back Cover:

"An almost perfect equivalent for the original." -- The New York Review of Books

"An extraordinary...translation of one of the world's most beautiful books." -- Philadelphia Inquirer

Book Description Penguin Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 2009. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Critical ed. 194 x 128 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. While his old furniture rots in storage, Malte Laurids Brigge lives in a cheap room in Paris, with little but a library reader s card to distinguish him from the city s untouchables. Every person he sees seems to carry their death with them, and he thinks of the deaths, and ghosts, of his aristocratic family, of which only he remains. The only novel by one of the greatest writers of poetry in German, the semi-autobiographical Notebooks is an uneasy, compelling and poetic book that anticipated Sartre and is full of passages of lyrical brilliance. Michael Hulse s new translation perfectly conveys the unsettling beauty of the original and is accompanied by an introduction on Rilke s life and the biographical and literary influences on the Notebooks. This edition also includes suggested further reading, a chronology and notes. Bookseller Inventory # ABZ9780141182216
