From Mr Geoffrey Brogan

Sir: In your obituary of Joseph Brodsky (30 January), you state: "In 1987, Joseph Brodsky, then 47, became the youngest person ever to receive the Nobel Prize for Literature." This is incorrect. In 1957, Albert Camus received the Nobel Literature Prize at the age of 44.

Yours sincerely,

Geoffrey Brogan
