Brodsky war ein Einzelkind in der Familie Leningrader Intellektueller. Sein Vater war ein Profifotograf, der im Krieg beruflich auch auf der Leningrader Front arbeitete. Nach dem Krieg diente er als Kapit¤n des dritten Ranges bei der Marine. Die Mutter Marija Moisejewna Wolpert arbeitete im Krieg als Dolmetscherin, die die Informationen von Kriegsgefangenen zu ¼bersetzen half. In der Nachkriegszeit war sie als Buchhalterin angestellt.

JANUARY 29, 1996
TRANSCRIPT JIM LEHRER: Joseph Brodsky appeared on the NewsHour in 1988 , and talked about the thing he liked most about America; its spirit of individualism. JOSEPH BRODSKY: (November 10, 1988) In order to live in a different country, you have to love something there. You have to love something there. You have to love either the spirit of the laws or the economic opportunities, or thewell, history of the country, the language perhaps, literature. I happen to love the latter two, but you ought to have some sentiment. You also have to, toin my case, well, there is something else. I simply loved all my life, loved is the stronger word, but I had a tremendous sentiment, partly conditioned of course by the reality of whichof where I grew upfor the spirit of individualism, for the idea of your being on your own in a big way. Well, so in a sense, in a sense when I came here, this is what happened, this is what I found. JIM LEHRER: Now two eminent poets on Brodsky and poetry in America today. Czeslaw Milosz won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1980. He's a Professor Emeritus of Slavic Languages at the University of California at Berkeley. Robert Hass is the current poet laureate of the United States and a professor of English at Berkeley. Gentlemen, welcome to both of you. Mr. Milosz, how would you characterize Joseph Brodsky's poetry?

    Joseph Brodsky (1940-1996) - Josip Aleksandrovich Brodsky - Iosif Brodskii Russian-born poet who was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1987. After moving to the United States Brodsky wrote his poems in Russian and his prose works in English. As a poet Brodsky was largely traditional and classical. He dealt with moral, religious and historical themes, and often used mythological allusions. "The poet, I wish to repeat, is language's means for existenceor, as my beloved Auden said, he is the one by whom it lives. I who write these lines will cease to be; so will you who read them. But the language in which they are written and in which you read them will remain not merely because language is more lasting than man, but because it is more capable of mutation." (from Nobel Lecture Joseph Brodsky was born in Leningrad (now St. Petersburg). His father was a photographer, but the family lived mostly on his mother's income. Brodsky studied at schools in Leningrad to the age of 15. He then dropped out of school and first went to work at the Arsenal defense plant. Between 1956 and 1962, he had some thirteen different jobs. In the essay 'Less Than One' Brodsky tells that he began to despise Lenin already when he was in the first grade - "not so much because of his political philosophy or practice, about which at the age of seven I knew very little, but because of his omnipresent images which plagued almost every textbook, every class wall, postage stamps, money, and what not, depicting the man at various ages and stages of his life." Everyone in his class knew that he was a Jew, but "seven-year-old boys don't make good anti-Semites," he later said. From the library of his uncle, who was a member of the Party, Brodsky found an illustrated, pre-revolutionary edition of

  • First Chapter: 'Collected Poems in English'
  • Selected Poems
    "[Brodsky is] the greatest poet of his generation . . . 'Selected Poems' is a revelation of the power of the word living in the cracks of silence."
  • A Part of Speech
    "Brodsky continues to write almost exclusively in his native Russian though the sad doppler effect of its recession into his past troubles him no less than it does all other writers living in banishment. . . . [Brodsky] is probing new themes with greater freedom, confidence and verbal resource."
  • Less Than One: Selected Essays
    "These studies of poets and prose writers, reminiscences and ethical and esthetic musings are shot through with an intensely lived native (though by no means narrow or local) culture many of us have been looking in vain for in the otherwise talented members of the so-called Third Wave of Russian emigre writers."
  • To Urania ,' reviewed by John Bayley
    "[H]is great achievement is to have put back into our own poetic tradition the richness and gaiety of allusion and the sheer learning that most present-day poets in England and America are too inhibited even to try for."
