Description:

First thus, the Penguin and first wrappered edition of the translation. SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR, JOSEPH BRODSKY. 8vo, in the publisher’s original decorated paper wrappers featuring a portrait of the author on the upper cover in purple and light green. 168 pp. A fine copy, especially well preserved for a wrapper copy of the period, the paper fresh and clean, the text-block solid, the wrappers fresh and unworn with just minor mellowing from age. FIRST EDITION SIGNED BY JOSEPH BRODSKY. This is a very early collection of his poems, and was published only one year after his expulsion from the Soviet Union and settlement in the U.S. and which was accomplished with the help of his literary supporters and friends such as W. H. Auden. Brodsky's poetry was denounced by a Leningrad newspaper as "pornographic and anti-Soviet." His papers were confiscated, he was interrogated, twice put in a mental institution and then arrested. After his expulsion he would eventually settle in Ann Arbor. In 1987 he won the Nobel Prize for Literature. Brodsky would eventually rise, in 1991, to the status of Poet Laureate of the United States. Bookseller Inventory #
