Emma Hardy, an embodiment of the Immanent Will in "The Convergence of the Twain" (written two weeks after the sinking of the Titanic in the early morning hours of April 15, 1912), invades the poet's memory, challenges his humanity, and redefines love as cold indifference. " The interpenetration of language and matter in continual metamorphosis is praised throughout the book. Brodsky's own metamorphosis occurs through continual dialogue with memory and the authors of the recent and deep past. SO FORTH "A Footnote to Weather Forecasts" (1986), one of the poems in Brodsky's last collection, So Forth (1996), echoes his hatred of monotony.

Or alive? " Love and death, divine and human, sacred and profane are collapsed into an uncertain and dark future in which Brodsky is both son and mother. The companion poem to Nature Morte—Nunc Dimittis (1972)—also views the separation of parent and child through the mythic lens of the story of the Passion of Christ, particularly the Crucifixion. The story takes place at the moment of the transition from the Old to the New Testament, as the Christ child is presented at the temple. Brodsky takes on the role of the older Simeon, departing for the outer dark and light of a post-Christian world.
