Administrative / Biographical History

When the Ceaucescu regime was toppled, Liliana Ursu was finally able to give readings abroad. The American poet Tess Gallagher heard her in Spain and was stunned. She spoke of "a woman's voice so carnivorous and tender… her poems yielded a humanly political veracity which did not accede to cynicism, but seemed to have witnessed with a clear gaze what had befallen her country, its people."
