EUGENIA GROŞAN – PAŞI ÎN TIMP, ED. MIRADOR, ARAD 2009 O CARTE CE VA RĂZBATE TIMPUL
A BOOK THAT WILL DEFY THE PASSAGE OF TIME
Universitatea de Vest „Vasile Goldiş” din Arad
The book of poems “Steps in Time” offers a refreshing reading, in which the lyrical gift of the poet chooses the most appropriate words for conveying states of mind, turmoil and life aspirations.
The places and games of childhood, described with a warm-hearted affection, the grandparents, parents, the habits of people and the spectacle of nature, under whose rainbow, the poet will say: “My tear is rain/ and a sun drop forever…” are a subject for meditation.
All together, they come to convince us that “Poetry was born in a village” (to paraphrase Lucian Blaga, for whom “Eternity was born in a village”).
Hence, the due respect for the words summoned by the poet, to tell us, delicately, wisely and without any ambiguities, of the realities of the soul, aspirations and doubts, straightforward convictions laden with symbols that are not aggressive, but always filled with a substance that has the gift of making us more confident in the brighter side of life.
Eugenia Groşan’s “Steps in Time” accompany feats of poetry of the truest sort which will defy the passage of time, for the glory of the Romanian language!
