Joseph Brodsky, 1988

The Hoover Institution Library & Archives has recently acquired a private collection of exiled Russian poet Joseph Brodsky’s papers, including letters, photos, drafts, manuscripts, artwork and published and unpublished poems, some of which are currently on exhibition.

Director Eric Wakin said: “With Hoover’s significant holdings on the poet in its Irwin T. and Shirley Holtzman Collection, and the recently acquired Joseph Brodsky papers from the Katilius Family Archive at the Green Library, we’re honored that Stanford has become a notable center for Brodsky studies in the United States.”
