About the Author

Joseph Brodsky was born in Leningrad on May 24, 1940. He left school at the age of fifteen, taking jobs in a morgue, a mill, a ship's boiler room, and a geological expedition. During this time he taught himself English and Polish and began writing poetry. His first poems appeared mainly in Syntax, mostrar mais a Leningrad underground literary magazine. In 1964, he was tried and sentenced to five years of administrative exile for the charge of parasitism. As a result of intervention by prominent Soviet cultural figures, he was freed in 1965. In 1972, under tremendous pressure from the authorities, he emigrated to the United States. He wrote nine volumes of poetry and several collections of essays. His works include A Part of Speech, To Urania, Watermark, On Grief and Reason, So Forth, and Collected Poems in English. He received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1987 and was named poet laureate of the United States, the first poet whose native language was not English to achieve this honor. He died of a heart attack on January 28, 1996. (Bowker Author Biography) mostrar menos

Pequena biografia
From Poets.org: Joseph Brodsky was born in Leningrad and left school at the age of 15, taking jobs in a morgue, a mill, a ship's boiler room, and a geological expedition. During this time, he taught himself English and Polish and began writing poetry. Brodsky was exiled from the Soviet Union in 1972 after serving 18 months of a five-year sentence in a labor camp. According to Brodsky, literature turned his life around. "I was a normal Soviet boy," he said. "I could have become a man of the system. But something turned me upside down: [Fyodor Dostoevsky's] Notes from the Underground. I realized what I am. That I am bad." He moved to the USA, where he made homes in both Brooklyn and Massachusetts. His first book of poetry in English translation appeared in 1973. Celebrated as the greatest Russian poet of his generation, Brodsky authored nine volumes of poetry, as well as several collections of essays, and received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1987. In addition to teaching positions at Columbia University and Mount Holyoke College, where he taught for 15 years, Brodsky served as Poet Laureate of the United States from 1991 to 1992. In 1993, he joined with Andrew Carroll to found the American Poetry & Literacy Project, a not-for-profit organization devoted to making poetry a more central part of American culture.

Joseph Brodsky was also a Russian nationalist with a loathing of Ukrainian independence. His On Ukrainian Independence (1992, unpublished) includes the lines 'Hurry back to your huts to be gang-banged by Krauts and Pollacks right in the guts' and 'When it's your turn to be dragged to graveyards, / You'll whisper and wheeze, your deathbed mattress a-pushing, / Not Shevchenko's bullshit but poetry from Pushkin'. (Alexander Pushkin and Taras Shevchenko, foundational poets of Russia and Ukraine respectively).

One of my few true poetic ideals. Astounding, inimitable, hilarious, gutting.

Brodsky's compilation of essays, speeches, lectures, and letters cover a variety of topics. Here are my most memorable aspects of Brodsky's On Grief and Reason: I loved the list of poets that should be read in their native tongue (German, Spanish, Polish, French, Greek, English, Dutch, Portuguese, Swedish, and Russian. Interestingly, he does not include Italian.). Poetry should be right next to the Bible in hotel nightstands. The joke is the Bible won't mind as it "doesn't object to the proximity of the phonebook" (p 203). Brodsky stresses the importance of poetry on a nation. He later includes a seminar given to people "ignorant or poorly acquainted with Robert Frost (p 223). He pulls apart the poetry of Thomas Hardy. "The Convergence of the Twain" was fascinating. The letter to Horace was surprisingly sexual. Despite all this, I found that one of the most fascinating points Brodsky makes is that if he had been a publisher, he would have insisted on putting the "exact age" at which an author composed his or her work on the cover of their book.… (mais)

Descripció de la ciutat de Venècia a l'hivern, on l'autor retornava un i altre any, durant els 17 anys anteriors a l'escriptura d'aquesta obra. Descripció poètica d'una ciutat submergida dins la boira, amb l'aigua sempre com a element fonamental.
