Joseph Brodsky Selected Poems: 1968-1996

€13,95

Self-educated, intense, impulsive and unmoored, Joseph Brodsky emerged in mid-century Russia as a poetic virtuoso, recognized by such greats as Anna Akhmatova as their worthy heir. He was expelled from the Soviet Union in 1972. Together, the poems in this volume unfold the project that, as Brodsky saw it, the condition of exile presented: 'to set the next man - however theoretical he and his needs may be - a bit more free.'This edition includes poems translated by Derek Walcott, Richard Wilbur and Anthony Hecht, and poems written in English or translated by the author himself.

It surveys Brodsky's tumultuous life and illustrious career, and showcases his most notable and poignant work as a poet. Winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature Edited and introduced by Ann Kjellberg.
