Format: Paperback
This collection of poetry is from the Romanian author's time in American. The introduction gently provides the necessary background to recognize the names of the Romanian poets mixed among Ezra Pound, Sylvia Plath, Ovid ...
The recurrent images in this collection are from Orthodox Christianity, erotic episodes, Romanian landscapes ... While there are glimpses of political/social/religious oppression and the East/West Europe, Old/New World distinctions, the poetry is immediately accessible to an American.
Her distinctiveness is very low key but absolutely perfect lines. In "The Russian Army at Moldova" she explores the crucifixion of a man in 1992, she refers to the normal elements of the Passion, then to contemporary America (satellites, snow) and concludes with the line "I also take note of the high price of nails." It is the absolute concreteness in here-and-now images that make this poetry superb.

her images will take you "there" March 24 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
LILIANA URSU
Through Liliana's poetry you start a voyage into a world of emotions and feelings that are real, delicate, powerful and sensuous. As good art will always do, her images will take you "there", will make you feel the joy, the pain, the fear and sensuality of her every word. The longer you stay in her inspired universe, the more you become part of it and by sharing the experience it becomes your own.
