We are delighted to welcome back Martyn¬†Crucefix, who will be reading from his new translation of Rilke’s Sonnets to Orpheus, the culmination of fifteen years’ work. This new collection is a natural follow-up to Crucefix’ much-acclaimed translation of the Duino Elegies.

Sonnets to Orpheus has already garnered glowing reviews:
“Martyn Crucefix’s impressive previous translations of the Duino Elegies have accustomed us to a way of hearing Rilke, but his Sonnets to Orpheus are, if anything more beautiful and natural versions, the form falling lightly on the ear, the thought tantalisingly clear in these bold explorations at the edge of sensibility.” – George Szirtes
