Poetry. Mirela Roznoveanu, a prolific Romanian writer, critic, and journalist, has come out with a new collection of poetry called ELEGIES FROM NEW YORK. "What I find fascinating are the startling images gleaned from such a breadth of human experience. The poetry is of such depth and complexity while not in the least hermetic. It is as if the image is the precise one to stir the conflicting emotions that permeate the poems. Mirela Roznoveanu's world travels and breadth of literary experience carry a resonance that inspires further exploration into the poetic line. Without actually reading the Romanian I find the reading of her poetry and of Heathrow O'Hare's translations as seamless. This is quite a remarkable accomplishment" -Elizabeth Gamble Miller.
