Iosif Aleksandrovich Brodsky (Russian: Иосиф Александрович Бродский, IPA: [ɪˈosʲɪf ˈbrotskʲɪj] was a Russian poet and essayist.

Born in Leningrad in 1940, Brodsky ran afoul of Soviet authorities and was expelled from the Soviet Union in 1972, settling in America with the help of W. H. Auden and other supporters. He taught thereafter at universities including those at Yale, Cambridge and Michigan.
