First published in 1961. This study analyses Shakespeare's treatment of the universal themes of Beauty, Love and Time.

Duino elegies by Rainer Maria Rilke ( Book )
43 editions published between 1939 and 1981 in 3 languages and held by 1,230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Completed in 1922, the same year as the publication of Eliot's The Waste Land, the Elegies constitute a magnificent godless poem in their rejection of the transcendent and their passionate celebration of the here and now. Troubled by our insecure place in this world and our fractured relationship with death, the Elegies are nevertheless populated by a throng of vivid and affecting figures: acrobats, lovers, angels, mothers, fathers, statues, salesman, actors and children. This bilingual edition offers twenty-first century readers a new opportunity to experience the power of Rilke's enduring masterpiece."--BOOK JACKET
