Item Description: -Liverpool University Press -, 1998. First UK edition. vii+238 pages with index. Cloth covers starting to lift. Very good in dustjacket. Alarmed by a critic's description of Joseph Brodsky as "the new Elvis Presley of world literature", David MacFadyen sets out to rid the poet of the stereotypes imposed by "superficial" readers. Of these, the most irritating for Brodsky is that he languished away from "home", though he turned down invitations to return after 1991. MacFadyen maintains that critics have been blind to the changes in Brodsky's work, above all to those that began to take place two decades earlier, after which his oeuvre is best understood in a Baroque context. That context becomes MacFayden's principal concern, explored on the basis of four related themes: the poet's youth in the Baroque setting of St Petersburg; his reading of Kierkegaard and Shestov; the influence of John Donne and the English Metaphysicals; and Brodsky's passion at the end of his life for Venice, his final resting place. This examination of Brodsky's poetry and prose redefines his relevance, not only with regard to the recent past, with an overview of some of the problems of post-Soviet aesthetics, but also with regard to the future, since the assessment of the poet's Weltanschauung as essentially Baroque leads to a redefinition of his latest role - that of a cross-cultural, bilingual essayist.
