Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0374525536, Paperback)A collection of poems in English by Joseph Brodsky, the supremely accomplished Russian poet who stood up to the repression of his native land and then constructed a whole new literary life and a huge reputation while in exile in the United States. Already established as a great Russian poet, Brodsky astonishingly achieved the equivalent in his adoptive language. Most of the poems in So Forth were written during the 10 years before his death, and while many exhibit his newly Americanized tongue, some revel in the mysterious accents that characterized his Russian works.

"Joseph Brodsky's last volume of poems in English, So Forth, represents eight years of masterful self-translation from the Russian, as well as a by now substantial body of work written directly in English. At the time of his death in 1996 Brodsky was recognized as one of the great poets of his mother tongue; yet after twenty-four years in the United States, and decades of teaching and studying poetry in English, he had become a master of his adoptive language as well. The poems collected here reflect the many milieus he inhabited - rural Massachusetts, New York City, his native St. Petersburg, the great cities of Europe - but they are the voice of a citizen of the world, exploring the territories of language itself."--BOOK JACKET.
