Joseph Brodsky

In the wonderful poem, "I love St. Petersburg, for you misty, blue eyes …" it with extraordinary lyricism admits his true love to St. Petersburg and to the saints, which keeps its ground. It is no coincidence her sublimely lyrical and soulful poem of St. Xenia of Petersburg, took first place at the prestigious poetry competition. Speaking of a lyrical conception of the poet, I would have marked its leading theme, like "religious tone of simplicity." Maybe this is my personal perception of her work, but it seems to me that classic theme of confrontation of civilization and nature, the fullness of the nature of religious purity, it opens with great aesthetic force and philosophical depth, with special author's originality and uniqueness. Love of the monasteries and their soothing peace, the love of God, in spite of the fallen world, carried through the terrible years of communist atheism, when the young author, a priest of the Diocese of Tver, giving a blessing to write poetry about God, he advised them not to publish: "For poems about God, they would crucify you …. " From this mindset, it seems, love of natural, material, mystical poetry Yesenin, glorified the beauty of mother nature and "otherworldly field …" Also, in this case, recall the classical Joseph Brodsky's lines: "In the village of God dwells not in the corners …." In this regard, stating, however, their opinions, I would call the poem "The waves washed Seligersky …" just a software for the creation of Ludmila Leonidovna, a poem, in which her poetic talent is revealed with particular force and fullness.
