AllMusic Review by

Robert Hunter reads his translations of the major poems of German poet Rainer Maria Rilke on this 110-minute spoken-word cassette issued by Hulogosi, which also published Hunter's translations in book form. Hunter's calm, rhythmic reading is especially effective in the Duino Elegies, which are more dramatic and offer more opportunities for the reader.
