About the book:

The strange and beautiful language of his late poems is re-created in these remarkable verse translations. Friedrich Hölderlin (1770-1843) was one of Europe's greatest poets. Constantine's translations make him accessible, even informal. This is a stimulating introduction to the work of a poet who addresses us ever more urgently as the millennium ends. This edition contains several new translations, including one of the great elegy "" - Bread and Wine."" The odes and hymns are more fully represented, and there are further extracts, in an equivalent English, from Hölderlin's extraordinary German versions of Sophocles.
