I usually say that I look forward to the day that I can read Mihai Eminescu in Romanian.

This was him as a old and young.


Mihai Eminescu ( 15 January 1850 – 15 June 1889),  was a poet, novelist and journalist, often regarded as the most famous and influential  poet in Romania. Some say he invented modern Romanian language.

Lucifer, translated to English :

Ion Luca Caragiale ( February 13, 1852 – 9 July 1912), was  born  in Wallachia and was a playwright, short story writer, poet, theatre manager, political commentator and journalist. Leaving behind an important cultural legacy, he is considered one of the greatest playwrights in Romanian theatre and literature.
