About the Author
Rainer Maria Rilke was born in Prague in 1875 and died of leukemia in Switzerland in 1926. Never in doubt about his vocation as poet, his work was the product of a tireless growth--work which may accurately be seen as the bridge leading from fin de siècle literature into Modernism.
Daniel Slager is the Publisher and CEO of Milkweed Editions. He is also a widely published translator from the German. His translations of work by contemporary writers, such as Marcel Beyer, Durs Gruenbein, Felicitas Hoppe, and Terezia Mora, marked their first publications in English. In 2005, he was awarded the American Translator Association's Ungar German Translation Award for his rendering of Rainer Maria Rilke's AUGUSTE RODIN.
