it was amazing

I keep going through various translations of the Duino Elegies as I can't read German and none of them quite satisfies me. Young's translation seems so very good, though. .

Ruslan If you liked the Duino Elegies you will probably enjoy this book about how they were written. This is recorded by the friend of Rilke, a noble Princess who lived in the Duino Castle, where Rilke visited her and where he received the inspiration to write the Elegies.
