Faculty Book: Burton Pike

Burton Pike, translation and introduction

Rainer Maria Rilke, The Notebooks of Malte Laurids Brigge
(Dalkey Archive Press, 2008)

This book of quiet, close-knit prose studded with unforgettable scenes is set forth sometimes in precise, analytical descriptions, and at other times in intense, lyrical flights of near-poetry. It is uniquely Rilke and touches the reader with the same sudden revelations and uncanny awareness as do his poems. Burton Pike is a professor emeritus of comparative literature, and Germanic Languages and Literature at the Graduate Center.
