Rilke is one of the most widely read poets of the 20th century. In his poetry, Rilke addresses the problems of death, God, and "destructive time," and attempts to overcome and transform these problems into an indestructive inner world.

"I have always found the Elegies hard to compare or even read with our own best poems.... Because of Mr. Poulin's translation, I experience the Elegies almost as English. He gives Rilke the crisp speed of English, and yet seems to remain very close to the original meaning." -- Robert Lowell
