    One thought on “Mandelstam

    1. John

      If it weren't for Chapter 9, "The Romance of the Precise," I would have written that Brown's book (1973), surely the first of its kind in English, isn't worth reading today.Brown gave us, long ago, a rather odd compilation of dry (but worshipful) biographical narrative, chronology, literary criticism - of the effusive sort that I can hardly read - and whatever other papers on the subject of all-things-Mandelstam that happened to be on his desk around 1973, I suspect. All of it entirely supersede [...]

      I really like Mandelstam's poetry, but I confess I don't quite know what to make of it. I seem to enjoy it more on an intuitive level and than understand it in any way I could articulate. I'm hoping Brown's famous study will help some in that regard. (He and Merwin have nice translation of M. in NYRB edition.)
