update on Brodsky/VN
My thanks to Alice Birney for the following. As an aside, I would note
that Mona Van Dyne, who followed Brodsky as Poet Laureate Consultant to
the LC, once wrote a charming autobiographical poem playing off VN's
_Speak, Memory_. DBJ

Minor correction re Brodsky: He served as Poet Laureate
Consultant in the Library of Congress 1991-92. Following him in
that position were Mona Van Duyn and Rita Dove. Professor Dove
is now serving her second year.
