Language: English . Brand New Book. Joseph Brodsky (1940-1996) is the only Russian poet who has been taken seriously by Russian leaders: Khrushchev sent him to the Gulag (1964), Brezhnev exiled him (1972), Gorbachev paid him a visit in the Library of Congress (1992), and Chernomyrdin demanded that his body be returned to Russia (1996). He is the most important poet Russia has produced in the second part of the twentieth century. Nobody after Pushkin has done as much as Brodsky for Russian poetry, introducing many features of English and American poetics, a new linguistic substratum to Russian poetry, new genres, and a new mentality. He replaced the hot-blooded, hysterical note of Russian poetry with a rational approach to the most profound problems of our time. His tragic perception of the world combines with skilfully camouflaged irony, self-deprecation, and technical virtuosity.Professor Emeritus of Russian Literature Valentina Polukhina, who knew Brodsky well over a long period, has been studying and writing about him for at least 30 years. Her second volume of interviews draws on eye-witness accounts of his friends, publishers, editors, translators, and fellow poets. It is a series of important discussions on the style, ideas, and personality of one of the most brilliant and paradoxical poets of our time. Subtle, incisive, and rigorous in its critical evaluation, each discussion significantly advances our understanding of Brodsky s complex poetic world. All discussions are linked by core questions that are carefully and sometimes provocatively formulated. This collection of 40 interviews illuminates a peculiarly intriguing contemporary phenomenon and affords a fascinating insight into the American literary scene.

Synopsis :

The new volume of interviews draws on eye-witness accounts of Joseph Brodsky's friends and family members, publishers, editors, translators, students, and fellow poets: John Le Carré, Oleg Tselkov, Petr Vail, Bengt Jangfeldt, Susan Sontag, Seamus Heaney, Derek Walcott, and others. This collection of 40 interviews illuminates an intriguing contemporary phenomenon and affords a fascinating insight into the American literary scene. Continuing the discussion begun in Vol. 1, this series of interviews contains important discussions on the style, ideas, and personality of one of the most brilliant and paradoxical poets of our time. Subtle, incisive, and rigorous in its critical evaluation, each discussion significantly advances our understanding of Brodsky's complex poetic world. All discussions are linked by core questions that are carefully and sometimes provocatively formulated. The interviews are published together with many unique photographs from the private archives of the author and the interviewees.

Critique: A"A poet like Joseph Brodsky is lucky to find a critic who shares his staggering breadth and depth of reading and his capacity for relating to one another traditions that at first appear to be utterly incompatible: the past and present of Russian poetry, the west and the east of European culture, Hellenic, Christian and existential modes of thought.A" Professor Donald Rayfield in his review of Valentina Polukhina's book A"Joseph Brodsky: a poet for our timeA", Times High Educational Supplement, 16 February,1990.A"Polukhina has been investigating her subject for at least ten years, the thoroughness of her research and the breadth of her knowledge (encompassing not only Brodsky but all modern Russian poetry) are formidable and everywhere evident.A"Professor David Bethea, an author of A"Joseph Brodsky and the creation of exileA". Slavic and East European Journal, 1991Valentina Polukhina has been studing Joseph Brodsky's poetry and prose for the last 20 years, and her knowledge knows no bounds. Brodsky is very fortunate to have so dedicated a scholar, thoughtful, profound, highly sensitive, tactful, indefatigable.Peter Vail
