During the week before his death in January, the Nobel Prize winner Joseph Brodsky completed a collection of poems entitled So Forth. Richard Coles discusses
Brodsky's writing and some of the arguments in his newly published collection of essays, On Grief and Reason. He also examines the destruction of art - from Leonardo's cartoons to statues of Soviet generals. In times of civil unrest, public monuments become the focus for antagonism - be it the French
Revolution or the former Yugoslavia. The historian Dario Gamboni 's new book explores the difference between vandalism and iconoclasm.
