Evenimentul zilei has jusr published an article about Mihai Eminescu, a national poet unknown outside his country.
But they mention the name of Corneliu M. Popescu, a translator of Eminescu, calling him a "genius".
And he was a genius! I was browsing to a small online collection of poems, and they're amazing. He managed to retain the originals' inherent musicality and rythm. The Gloss (Glossa) is one tour-de-force; Lucifer (Luceafărul) is another.
It's a pity Corneliu M. Popescu died in the 1977 earthquake. He was just nineteen at the time.
