Selected Poems,


Compiled when the poet was 33, this selected volume presents a generous sampling of Brodsky's early verse to the English-speaking world--of which he was newly a part when this was published, having immigrated, in exile, to the United Sates in 1972. Here, George Kline, translator, preserves the meter of the original, but chose not to render the rhyme into English in favor of more forceful attention to the content. Throughout Brodsky can be seen exploring the forebears of European poetry--Dante, Goethe, and the Bible--and wrestling with metaphysical themes such as the spirit's conflict with the body.
