  • Reviews
  • Tomas Venclova was born in the Lithuania of 1937. A book of his poetry, Winter Dialogue, was published by Northwestern University Press. He is a professor of Slavic languages and literatures at Yale University, and has been a visiting professor at Harvard, Columbia, and Berkeley.
    Praise for Tomas Venclova 'Venclova's Forms of Hope is poignant and eloquent work, merging literary criticism with moral insight. One believes that Mandelstam and Babel might have rejoiced in it.'
    Harold Bloom
