The Daily Poem
Wednesday 26 October 1994
Marin Sorescu was born in 1936 in Bulzesti, and is editor in chief of the literary review Ramuri and Minister of Culture. He became a voice for the Romanian people during the revolutionary Eighties, so popular that his readings had to be held in football stadiums. His poetry has been translated into many languages and his plays performed all over the world. His collections in English include Selected Poems 1965-1973 and Let's Talk About the Weather.
This poem is translated by Paul Muldoon. Marin Sorescu will be appearing at Poetry International on 29 October in the Purcell Room (The South Bank) at 7.30pm along with fellow poets Sorley MacLean, Paul Muldoon and EJ Scovell.
