Congratulations, Susan! This translation reminded me of the artful delineation of character in Dryden’s Absalom and Achitophel because it was so good. Well done!

Best,
Erik

This is great, Susan! I love your versions of Rilke (& I've always loved that Bellini portrait, too).

It will be great to see these all collected between covers one day.

Thanks, everyone. It is great to see the translation with the image of the artwork that may have inspired the original work, or that at least gives a visual representation of the details the poem describes.
