About this title: "If anybody except a poet were saying the things Sorescu says in his poems, he or she would be found insane. But this is what poetry should be doing, putting this kind of material into rational form." (Russell Edson) In this collection the Romanian's poems are expertly translated by two other Romanian writers and Stuart Friebert, with an introduction by noted Irish poet Seamus Heaney.
