Doug says: A great new translation of Rilke's essential work.

"Crucefix's translation will have, and keep, a place on my shelves where all the poetry lives." - Philip Pullman

A new selection and translation, by an acclaimed poet, of Rilke's most essential work - the perfect gift for the poetry lover in your life

In dazzling new translations of 142 poems by the acclaimed Martyn Crucefix, Rilke beguiles with fresh insight and mystery.

Rainer Maria Rilke developed one of the most singular poetic styles of the twentieth century. Visionary yet always anchored in the real world, his poems give profound expression to fundamental questions of love and death, of the chaos of the modern world as well as the spiritual consolation of art and nature.

Change Your Life draws from across Rilke's career to offer a comprehensive view of his most essential poetry, featuring major selections from the great Duino Elegies and Sonnets to Orpheus alongside less frequently anthologised work.
