"Brodsky’s old friend Lev Loseff puts a great deal of emphasis on his subject’s decision to drop out of school, arguing that it prevented Brodsky from being ruined by overschooling. Brodsky thought so, too. 'Afterward I often regretted that move, especially when I saw my former classmates getting on so well inside the system,' he wrote. 'And yet I knew something that they didn’t. In fact, I was getting on too, but in the opposite direction, going somewhat further.'" Keith Gessen • New Yorker
