The strange and beautiful language of his late poems is re-created in these remarkable verse translations. Friedrich Hölderlin (1770-1843) was one of Europe's greatest poets. Constantine's translations make him accessible, even informal. This is a stimulating introduction to the work of a poet who addresses us ever more urgently as the millennium ends. This edition contains several new translations, including one of the great elegy "" - Bread and Wine."" The odes and hymns are more fully represented, and there are further extracts, in an equivalent English, from Hölderlin's extraordinary German versions of Sophocles.

About the Author:

Johann Christian Friedrich Holderlin (20 March 1770--6 June 1843) was a major German lyric poet. His work bridges the Classical and Romantic schools. Having spent most of his life tormented by mental illness, he suffered great loneliness, and often spent his time playing the piano, drawing, reading, writing, and enjoyed traveling when he had the chance.
