I have very little to add to what this author said, except to note that I found her review fascinating and inspiring (as well as frustrating, since I'm now going to have to dig up $50 to buy the new translations).
Until I can get around to Snow, I'll make do with my A. Poulin Jr. edition of Duino Elegies and The Sonnets to Orpheus, which also includes the poems in the original German.
With so much in life to weigh one down, thanks for publishing a piece which so sensitively speaks of the nature of poetry.
