CONTRAPAGINA
Mirela Roznoveanu: A Few Notes on Romanian Literature as World Literature, edited by Mircea Martin, Christian Moraru, and Andrei Terian (New York and London: Bloomsbury Academic, 2017), 374 pages.

Excerpt from the book review: I would salute this anthology if there were at least four or five recent essays in English about Romanian literature as a whole. As this is the only such survey ever in English (the word “translation” does not appear anywhere), the entire project miscarries in its claim to present to the world the essence of Romanian literature. I have nothing against fresh readings. I like new points of view. However, most of these texts (displaying a strong infatuation with new methodologies) do not merit being presented as an introduction to Romanian literature. They award that status, rather, to a Romanian counter- or anti-culture retrospectively constructed by their agenda.

Extras din cronica literară la acest volum: Aș saluta această antologie dacă ar fi existat cel puțin patru sau cinci studii recente în limba engleză despre literatura română în ansamblu. Deoarece acesta este singurul studiu realizat vreodată în limba engleză (cuvântul “traducere” nu apare nicăieri), întregul proiect este un esec în pretenția sa de a prezenta lumii esența literaturii române. Nu am nimic împotriva citirilor proaspete. Îmi plac noi puncte de vedere. Cu toate acestea, majoritatea acestor texte (care manifestă o puternică obsesie cu noile metodologii) nu merită prezentate ca o introducere a literaturii române publicului de limba engleza. Cartea in discutie acordă acest statut, mai degrabă, unei contra-sau anti-culturi românesti construită retrospectiv de agenda autorilor.

Inauguration postponed; miners patrolling BUCHAREST, Romania (AP) The inauguration of President-elect Ion Iliescu was postponed today following the worst violence in Bucharest since the December revolution. Club-wielding coal miners continued to patrol the capital. The miners streamed into Bucharest by the tens of thousands Thursday after Iliescu called for help in putting down anti-government riots. They clubbed passers-by and journalists and raided the offices of opposition parties. A woman answering the telephone at Diescu’s office said a meeting of both houses of Parliament that was scheduled for today had been postponed until Monday. Iliescu was due to be sworn in at the Parliament. The fighting began early Wednesday when truncheon-swinging riot police waded into University Square and broke up the anti-government demonstration. The demonstrators contend that the National Salvation Front, which took power in the revolution and won elections in May, is largely neo-Communist At least five people died, and new figures published today by the state Rompres news agency said 367 people were injured, including 112 who remained in hospitals. The miners streamed into the capital after soldiers fired on demonstrators who threw firebombs at police headquarters. Rompres quoted an unidentified spokesman for the miners as saying nobody had invited them to come to and destroyed the editorial offices of the newspaper Thursday. The paper, which had been the main voice of opposition against Iliescu and the government, did not appear today. Although Romania Libera is privately owned, “the government wants to change the editors,” Roznoveanu said by telephone. At University Square, one hulking miner, his face smudged with coal dust, said he hoped he and all fellow miners would be able to leave the capital later in the day and “leave the police work” to regular law enforcement agencies. The violence by the miners Thursday was the latest outburst in the capital’s worst street fighting since the bloody December revolution that ousted and executed Communist dictator Nicolae Ceausescu.  Some miners were seen leaving University Square in trucks and buses early today. But others remained, beating those they considered government opponents. They forced some people to work along with crews sent in to repair trampled flower beds at University Square, where riot police ended a 33-day anti-government protest Wednesday. But the miners looking dirty and worn, appeared to have stopped harassing Western journalists following dozens of assaults and threats against foreign reporters Thursday. Television crews, who were warned Thursday by police and hotel personnel not to film or report, moved about freely today. Mirela Roznoveanu, a journalist with the Romania Libera newspaper, said the miners beat a co-worker (…)
