Today, we’re proud to present an exciting selection of poems by the acclaimed Romanian poet Nora Iugatranslated by Adam J. Sorkin and Diana Manole. Don’t let their brief appearance fool you: these eleven short poems burn and slash their way out into the open with their searing language. It’s such a joy to feature one of the most significant women poets from Romania whose work we cherish and admire.
