Amy Does anyone well-versed in German/Rilke have English translation recommendations? I read all the letters in Mitchell's, but I've also heard good things about Burnham and got a great impression from the 'live the questions' passage.

I'm just interested in how they compare to the original.


Nina I see it's been nearly 4 years since you asked and I'm afraid I can't help - I was hoping someone could point me in the direction of a good translation as well. A friend warned me today not to get the Marston Gate edition as it doesn't mention the translator by name anywhere in the book!
