Joseph Brodsky, Vingt sonnets à Marie Stuart

Composés en 1974, ces poèmes sont nés d’une promenade au jardin du Luxembourg, à Paris, où le poète en exil croise la statue de Marie Stuart, dans l’allée des reines de France. Plusieurs figures de femmes qui ont compté pour lui se superposent à la silhouette de la reine d’Écosse, reine de France par son bref mariage avec François II. Dans une langue qui joue sur les deux registres du trivial et du sublime, de la citation et de son détournement, l’évocation amoureuse est l’occasion pour le poète d’une rêverie mélancolique sur l’exil et la séparation, la mémoire et l’histoire, la littérature européenne, les bifurcations de son propre destin. Le choix du sonnet, forme exemplaire de la culture européenne, est aussi un hommage à ceux écrits par Marie Stuart.

Joseph Brodsky, Conversations

After his expulsion from the Soviet Union in 1972, Brodsky transformed himself from a stunned and unprepared emigre into, as he himself termed it, “a Russian poet, an English essayist, and, of course, an American citizen.”

In interviews from 1972 to 1995, “Joseph Brodsky: Conversations” covers the course of his exile. The last interview dates from just ten weeks before his death. In talks, he calibrates the process of his remarkable reinvention from a brilliant, brash, but decidedly provincial Leningrad poet to an international man of letters and an erudite Nobel Prize laureate.

Brodsky’s poetry earned him a Nobel, and his essays won him awards and international acclaim. This volume shows that there was a third medium, in addition to poetry and essays, in which Brodsky excelled–the interview. Although he said that “in principle prose is simply spilling some beans, which poetry sort of contains in a tight pod,” he nevertheless emerges as an extraordinary and inventive conversationalist. This volume includes not only his notable interviews that helped consolidate Brodsky’s international reputation but also early and hard-to-find interviews in journals that have since disappeared.

Joseph Brodsky, Watermark

Watermark is Joseph Brodsky’s witty, intelligent, moving and elegant portrait of Venice. Looking at every aspect of the city, from its waterways, streets and architecture to its food, politics and people, Brodsky captures its magnificence and beauty, and recalls his own memories of the place he called home for many winters, as he remembers friends, lovers and enemies he has encountered. Above all, he reflects with great poetic force on how the rising tide of time affects city and inhabitants alike.
