Brumfield W. C. In the Presence of Two (Future) Nobel Laureates

(Tulane University, USA)

Abstract ♦ This essay presents the author's encounters with Joseph Brodsky on two occasions: in the fall of 1972 at Berkeley and subsequently at Harvard University. The earlier encounter occurred shortly after Brodsky's arrival in the United States and provides a personal observation of the poet at a critical point in his biography. This episode also involved Czeslaw Milosz, who was at that time a professor in the Department of Slavic Languages at the University of California.

Keywords: Joseph Brodsky, Czeslaw Milosz.
