Example text

The Anxiety of Influence, pp. 66, 71. It is clear from Bloom's remarks that the tessera is not the same as the subtext (which is always known to the later poet). It is certainly not the case that the erudite Brodsky 'has never read' all the poems of Mandelstam to which I refer in this essay. Indeed, he has explicitly asserted the centrality of reading in his claim that 'man is what he reads' (L: 365). Nevertheless, two salient factors remain valid: each poem by Mandelstam that I discuss is a 'central poem by an indubitable precursor' and we are 'dealing with primal words, but antithetical meanings'.

Leningraders remember the demolition of the Greek church in 1966 and the construction, in its place, of a large concert hall in the spirit of timidly modernistic post-Stalin architecture. Strolling the city in search of unusual architectural perspectives ('and at some late hour I sat/on the ruins of an apse') was quite common among young intellectuals, many of whom could even give the name and address of 'a certain Tatar family'.

Brodsky's Poetics and Aesthetics ering from cold'] - from his Symbolist phase, anticipates the metaphysical climate of 'Mne kholodno' and belongs, as does the later poem, to the tradition of Petersburg as an 'abstract' city. See Mandelstam's poem 'Sestry - tiazhest' i nezhnost', odinakovy vashi primety ... ' ['Sisters - heaviness and tenderness, your signs are the same ... '] (1920). Here the 'tenderness' and the 'heaviness' are represented by the green world of 'transparent spring' and, in the last line of the poem, 'emerald' water.
