Neue Gedichte = New poems by Rainer Maria Rilke ( Book )
174 editions published between 1907 and 2010 in 6 languages and held by 1,043 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
New Poems (1907-1908) represented a departure for Rilke from the traditional German lyric poetry of which he was then considered a master. Apparent in these poems is the influence of Rodin -- for whom Rilke had worked -- as well as other visual artists, including Hokusai, Cezanne, Van Gogh, and Picasso. In this collection, Rilke forced his language to extremes of subtlety and refinement that only now, in Stephen Cohn's translations, is being captured properly in English

Poems from the book of hours, "Das stundenbuch," by Rainer Maria Rilke ( Book )
38 editions published between 1941 and 1975 in 3 languages and held by 833 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Rilke's Book of Hours falls into three parts: The Book of Monkish Life (1899), The Book of Pilgrimage (1901), and The Book of Poverty and Death (1903). Although these poems were the work of Rilke's youth, they contain the germ of his mature convictions. Written as spontaneously received prayers, they celebrate a God who is not the Creator of the Universe, but seems to be rather humanity itself, and, above all, that most intensely conscious part of humanity, the artist. This exquisite gift edition contains Babette Deutsch's classic translations, which capture the rich harmony and suggestive imagery of the originals, allowing interpretations both religious and philosophical, and transporting the reader to new heights of inspiration and musicality."--Publisher's website

Rilke's book of hours : love poems to God by Rainer Maria Rilke ( Book )
8 editions published between 1996 and 2005 in English and held by 761 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
At the beginning of this century, a young German poet returned from a journey to Russia, where he had immersed himself in the spirituality he discovered there. He "received" a series of poems about which he did not speak for a long time - he considered them sacred, and different from anything else he ever had done and ever would do again. This poet saw the coming darkness of the century, and saw the struggle we would have in our relationship to the divine
