Letters, summer 1926 by Rainer Maria Rilke( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Overview: Edited by Yevgeny Pasternak, Yelena Pasternak, and Konstantin M. Azadovsky. The summer of 1926 was a time of trouble and uncertainty for each of the three poets whose correspondence is collected in this moving volume. Marina Tsvetayeva was living in exile in France and struggling to get by. Boris Pasternak was in Moscow, trying to come to terms with the new Bolshevik regime. Rainer Maria Rilke, in Switzerland, was dying. Though hardly known to each other, they began to correspond, exchanging a series of searching letters in which every aspect of life and work is discussed with extraordinary intensity and passion. Letters: Summer 1926 takes the reader into the hearts and minds of three of the twentieth century's greatest poets at a moment of maximum emotional and creative pressure

14 editions published in 1969 in German and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Max and Moritz by Wilhelm Busch( Book )

5 editions published between 1982 and 1985 in English and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ann Elizabeth Wild's Max and Moritz is a congenial new rendering into modern English of the "story of two bad boys in seven tricks." She not only succeeds in faithfully translating the original using Busch's favourite trochaic tetrameter, but also manages most convincingly to convey the author's sense of humour and wit, and to echo his mastery of language and skill of versification. We are pleased to publish her translation for the first time. Printing the German text next to the English will give readers fluent (or interested) in both languages the opportunity to compare Busch's famous original with Ann Wild's fine translation
