Romanian Poems

Paul Celan, Julian Semilian, Paul Stuart. Green Integer, $10.95 (82pp) ISBN 978-1-892295-41-5

Before his decisive move to writing in German after 1948, Paul Celan (1920-1970), who grew up in Bukovina, wrote poetry in Romanian; work from 1945 to 1947 is here collected in Romanian Poems. With facing-page translations by Julian Semilian and Sanda Agalidi, these 17 poems and prose pieces alter Celan's oeuvre, and are essential to it.
