From the PublisherPraise for Duino/Elegies (NPP, 2000)
"[Snow's work stands the highest test that can be put to any translation: it would be a worthy poetic achivement even without the original to prop it up."
— Brian Phillips, The New Republic
Praise for The Book of Images (NPP, 1994)
"Edward Snow, who so insightfully translated the two volumes of Rilke's New Poems, has now turned to The Book of Images, one of the poet's most startling and diverse masterworks. Snow has rendered with great skill and accuracy a work both familiar and unknown, more complicated and more immediate than many have suspected, at once grave, mysterious, and beautiful." —Edward Hirsch
Praise for New Poems (NPP, 1987):
Rilke's first great work . . . [Snow's translation] is clear, accurate, and fluent."
Praise for Duino Elegies (NPP, 2000)
"I have been engrossed in English versions of Duino Elegies for years, and Snow's is by far the most radiant and, as far as I can tell, the most faithful . . . Reading this rendition provided new revelations into Rilke's symbolic landscapes of art, death, love and time."
—Frederic Koeppel, The Commercial Appeal (Memphis)
