Duino ElegiesRainer Maria Rilke
Named after the Castle of Duino on a rocky headland of the Adriatic, the “Duino Elegies” speak in a voice that is both intimate and majestic on the mysteries of human life and our attempt, in the words of the translator, “to use our self-consciousness to some advantage: to transcend, through art and the imagination, our self-deception and our fear”.
