9780300181609: Joseph Brodsky: A Literary Life

The work of Joseph Brodsky (1940–1996), one of Russia’s great modern poets, has been the subject of much study and debate. His life, too, is the stuff of legend, from his survival of the siege of Leningrad in early childhood to his expulsion from the Soviet Union and his achievements as a Nobel Prize winner and America’s poet laureate.

In this penetrating biography, Brodsky’s life and work are illuminated by his great friend, the late poet and literary scholar Lev Loseff. Drawing on a wide range of source materials, some previously unpublished, and extensive interviews with writers and critics, Loseff carefully reconstructs Brodsky’s personal history while offering deft and sensitive commentary on the philosophical, religious, and mythological sources that influenced the poet’s work. Published to great acclaim in Russia and now available in English for the first time, this is literary biography of the first order, and sets the groundwork for any books on Brodsky that might follow.

Review:

Praise for Joseph Brodsky: A Life (Russian edition):

“The best single literary biography of the writer yet to have appeared in any language.”—Times Literary Supplement

(Times Literary Supplement)

"...[a] warm and appreciative study."—Derek Mahon, Literary Review (Derek Mahon Literary Review 2011-02-01)

"A delightful literary biography. . . . This work is a pleasure, and it sheds light on unexpected details about the poet."—D. Hutchins, CHOICE (D. Hutchins CHOICE)

null (Andrei Zorin 2010-09-21)

null (Jane Taubman 2010-09-22)

'Witty, urbane, engaging. . . . Lev Loseff, an important Russian poet in his own right, provides a wealth of new, important information. A magnificent contribution.”—David M. Bethea, University of Wisconsin-Madison (David M. Bethea 2010-09-22)

"The author of Joseph Brodsky: A Literary Life has accomplished the feat of discussing a poet’s work persuasively in a language other than his own, and allowed us to glimpse the unique brilliance of the originals."—Carol Rumens, The Independent (Carol Rumens The Independent 2011-03-04)

“Joseph Brodsky: A Literary life handles the life with intelligence and tact, while its treatment of Brodsky’s art and mind will remain of permanent value.”—Andrew Kahn, Times Literary Supplement (Andrew Kahn Times Literary Supplement 2011-06-17)

“Lev Loseff’s Joseph Brodsky is partly a biography of the Nobel-Prize winning poet (though Loseff denies that biography was his intention) as well as a critical study and a memoir. It’s valuable on all three counts....Joseph Brodsky is a pleasure to read.”—Mark Jay Mirsky, Hareetz (English) (Mark Jay Mirsky Hareetz (English) 2011-06-01)

“....indispensable....”—Stephan Delbos, The Prague Post (Stephan Delbos The Prague Post 2011-07-20)

"Loseff ’s book is less the story of Brodsky’s life than an account of the growth of the poet’s mind, the kind of book that is rarely written in English now, as it falls between the monograph and biography."—Justin Quinn, Edinburgh Review (Justin Quinn Edinburgh Review)

“...a meditation on the essential nature of poetry and the poet through the contrasting examples of two friends.”—Atar Hadari, Jewish Quarterly (Atar Hadari Jewish Quarterly 2012-03-01)

“The academic and poet Lev Loseff takes the reader through the fascinating life and work of his fellow Russian poet and friend Joseph Brodsky...Loseff provides much insight into Brodsky’s personal and literary life under Stalin and Krushchev, as well as detailed commentary on the development of Brodksy’s poetry.”— Pol O Mulrl, Irish Times (Pol O Mulrl Irish Times 2012-04-14)
