For Your Delectation and Delight


Sir Philip Sidney's The Countess of Pembroke's Arcadia

And a complete on-line Translation of Goethe's Faust

And here you will find a plethora of on-line works including:

Translations of some of the Poetry of Fredrico Garcia Lorca, Osip Mandelstahm, Rainer Maria Rilke (including the Dunio Elegies and The Sonnets to Orpheus, Petrarch, Leopardi, Baudelaire, Catullus, The Homeric Odes, Chaucer, Sidney, a new Translation of Racine's Phaedra, Cyrano de Bergerac, Aucassin and Nicolette, Verlaine, Apollinaire and others.

And at This site translations of Ovid and others including some interesting rhyming translations of Tang Dynasty Poets.

I found the translation of Baudelaire's extraordinarily difficult poem "Les Correspondences" very nice indeed.

And consider for a moment the notion of this venture--free on-line translations/texts. What a great way to start the New Year.

I might also suggest sampling the poet's original work. Some of it is appealing.
