Synopsis:

"Translator Burton Pike captures the edgy, haunting beauty of this little-known masterpiece."—O Magazine

First published in 1910, Rilke's Notebooks of Malte Laurids Brigge is one the first great modernist novels, the account of poet-aspirant Brigge in his exploration of poetic individuality and his reflections on the experience of time as death approaches. This translation by Burton Pike is a reaction to overly stylized previous translations, and aims to capture not only the beauty but also the strangeness, the spirit, of Rilke's German.

Review:
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.

Review:
"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: Dalkey Archive. 1 Paperback(s), 2008. soft. Book Condition: New. Renowned as the author of Sonnets to Orpheus and Letters to a Young Poet and often considered the greatest German language poet of the 20th century, Rainer Maria Rilke published this, his only novel, in 1910. The book consists of the fictional reminiscences of a young poet named Malte Laurids Brigge, who lives in a cheap room in Paris, brooding upon the deaths—and ghosts—of his aristocratic family, of which he is the sole living descendant. Filled with passages of lyrical brilliance, Rilke's semi-autobiographical novel is both an elegiac prose poem and a coming-of-age story. 198. Bookseller Inventory # 34019
