Czeslaw Milosz and Joseph Brodsky : Fellowship of Poets, Hardback Book

Czeslaw Milosz and Joseph Brodsky : Fellowship of Poets Hardback


This intimate portrayal of the friendship between two icons of twentieth-century poetry, Czeslaw Milosz and Joseph Brodsky, highlights the parallel lives of the poets as exiles living in America and Nobel Prize laureates in literature.

To create this truly original work, Irena Grudzinska Gross draws from poems, essays, letters, interviews, speeches, lectures, and her own personal memories as a confidant of both Milosz and Brodsky. The dual portrait of these poets and the elucidation of their attitudes toward religion, history, memory, and language throw a new light on the upheavals of the twentieth-century.

Gross also incorporates notes on both poets' relationships to other key literary figures, such as W.

H. Auden, Susan Sontag, Seamus Heaney, Mark Strand, Robert Haas, and Derek Walcott.
