The Notebooks of Malte Laurids Brigge (Google eBook)
"Translator Burton Pike captures the edgy, haunting beauty of this little-known masterpiece."—O MagazineFirst 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.
