      "Great!" cries the Emperor. "What one conquers is up to the scholar's quills.And let the Treasury boys go bonkers trying to pay the bills."My reading of this late Brodsky collection was deeply influenced by yesterday's experience with the biography.

    7. Coco on said:

      The poem Brodsky wrote for his daughter is, perhaps, one of the most beautiful things I've ever read, partially because of the context, but also, because this man could write his ass off.
