Short History: Born in Leningrad in 1940 (so he was a year younger than my father who was not born in Leningrad) He became a poet and eventually thrown out of the Soviet Union as a dissident. 1987 awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature “for an all-embracing authorship, imbued with clarity of thought and poetic intensity”. (Someone I should definitely take the time to read.) Died 1996 after being reunited with his family when the Soviet Union collapsed.
