The Bosnia poem
Tuesday 17 August 1993
Joseph Brodsky, who was born in Leningrad, was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1987. This poem written last year, was recently read out by Ute Lemper on Artists for Bosnia, part of Channel 4's Bloody Bosnia Season. Reprinted by permission of Farrar, Straus & Girous, Inc.
