R. Hunter's Translation of Rilke's Duino Elegies
    #1607322 - 06/04/03 09:30 AM (14 years, 11 months ago)

in an earlier post, i should have refered to hunter's version

http://www.dead.net/RobertHunterArchive/files/Poetry/Elegies/Duino_Elegies.html

"Animals see the unobstructed
world with their whole eyes.
But our eyes, turned back upon
themselves, encircle and
seek to snare the world,
setting traps for freedom."

Nice :grin:
Hunter is a very literate man.
That was a hefty project translating all that.
Hunter's own words are trully amazing. Just as Jerry and the rest of the band could play music that manifested the divine , Robert Hunter wrote words that could evoke the same. His gift as a songwriter and poet is down right amazing.
I guess I'm heavely biased though, since his words are gospel in my eyes. :grin:
I never got much into poetry outside of Ginsberg and a  few other beat poets, but Hunter's poetry brings me to tears. It cuts straight to the heart.

You took the works right out of my mouth as usual my friend. I couldn't have expressed my own feelings about Hunter any better!  :grin:

I wonder if there's a tape out there of him reading it. I have heard a couple tapes of him reading poetry and he's very passionate.

I agree, many of Hunters words give me goose bumps!

It makes me believe that some divine power exists when I think that by some chance Hunter met with Garcia!

as a matter of fact, when the book came out in '89 there was a cassette tape that came with it of hunter reading the elegies with tom constanten accompanying him on piano.

Very tasty. :smile:I've got to get a copy of that.
Hunter's description of the reading sounds very entertaining.
Now that I know it's out there I just have to find it.
Thanks and enjoy Lou Reed :cool:
