about this book

This is the definitive, widely acclaimed translation of the major prose work of one of our century's greatest poets--Rilke's only novel, extraordinary for its structural uniqueness and purity of language. Malte Laurids Brigge is a young Danish nobleman and poet living in Paris. Obsessed with death and the reality that lurks behind appearances, Brigge muses on his family, their history, and on the teeming life of the city. Many of the themes and images that occur in Rilke's poetry can also be found in the novel, prefiguring the modernist movement in its self-awareness and imagistic immediacy.
