Product description

Review

His plain but mercurial idiom is engaging and likeable… He can also be wonderfully funny. --Douglas Dunn.

His reactions to an increasingly absurd political régime were always cleverly balanced: he never engaged in the servile praise of leader and party usually required of Romanian poets, but nor did he venture into dissidence. He was content to let irony do its job…His texts are masterpieces of allusion and adroit manoeuvring… Black humour, a keen feeling for the absurd, genuine delight. --Virgil Nemoianu, TLS.

A vigorous, playful imagination… a blackish humour and an epigrammatic lightness of touch. --Alan Jenkins, Observer.

About the Author

Marin Sorescu (1936-96) was a cheerfully melancholic comic genius, and one of the most original voices in Romanian literature. His mischievous poetry and satirical plays earned him great popularity during the Communist era. While his witty, ironic parables were not directly critical of the regime, Romanians used to a culture of double-speak could read other meanings in his playful mockery of the human condition. But later - like a hapless character from one of his absurdist dramas - the peasant-born people's poet was made Minister of Culture, in Ion Iliescu's post-Ceaucescu government.
