Thirty humorous sketches highlight the sharp conflict in temperament and attitude to life of Angel and Fox, characters who have appeared previously in the poet’s work. The clash is unresolved. Poets featured in Brodsky and others include Milosz, Emily Dickinson, John Donne and Sir John Wyatt. The 20 poems in the final section – On Spain and on gardens – are light-hearted with a touch of satire.
