1. "Biblia ne povesteşte de Samson, cum că muierea,
Când dormea, tăindu-i părul, i-a luat toată puterea
De l-au prins apoi duşmanii, l-au legat şi i-au scos ochii,
Ca dovadă de ce suflet stă în piepţii unei rochii..."

2. "O, cum Rafael creat-a pe Madona dumnezeie,
Cu diadema-i de stele, cu surasu-i blând, vergin,
Eu făcut-am zeitate dintr-o palidă femeie,
Cu inima stearpă, rece şi cu suflet de venin!"


1. "Dar nu vine... Singuratic
În zadar suspin şi sufăr
Lângă lacul cel albastru
Încărcat cu flori de nufă

Vocea lui Andrei Pleşu e asemănătoare cu cea a profesorului meu de română din clasa a VII-a, deci această carte audio mă umple cu o nostaligie puternică. Această colecţie conţine poeme mai puţin cunoscute a lui Eminescu, dar care au aceeaşi putere descriptivă şi lirism subiectiv.

I have the deepest respect for Corneliu M. Popescu! Eminescu could only be translated by another genius.

Poems by Mihai Eminescu is a book with almost all poems written by Mihai Eminescu which is an author that I have learned a lot about as High School student. Yes, this book had some illustrations, but those were there for historical reasons. I never had a chance to read most of his work, nor did I know that his work was translated to English. Because this book is composed solely of poems, the Author's voice is all and everything. Eminescu absolutely amazed me with the amount of metaphors and othe ...more

Until now I've never any works by Romanian authors, and I was quite pleased with this introduction to the Romanian literature. Eminescu's poems are romantic, nostalgic and longing. Some of them depict his long-gone childhood, others focus on fairytale plots, and yet others mainly talk about love and death. It was a pleasure reading them.

Corneliu M Popescu provides the purest english translation of Eminescu's works. It is an incredible literary achievement, shadowed only by the tragic death of this young genious, that died at the age of 19 together with his mother in the big earthquake from 1977...

Eminescu was an active member of the Junimea literary society and he worked as an editor for the newspaper Timpul ("The Time"), the official newspaper of the Conservative Party (1880–1918).

“Glossa

Time goes by, time comes along,
All is old and all is new;
What is right and what is wrong,
You must think and ask of you;
Have no hope and have no fear,
Waves that rise can never hold;
If they urge or if they cheer,
You remain aloof and cold.

To our sight a lot will glisten,
Many sounds will reach our ear;
Who could take the time to listen
And remember all we hear?
Keep aside from all that patter,
Seek yourself, far from the throng
When with loud and idle clatter
Time goes by, time comes along.

Nor forget the tongue of reason
Or its even scales depress
When the moment, changing season,
Wears the mask of happiness -
It is born of reason's slumber
And may last a wink as true:
For the one who knows its number
All is old and all is new.

Be as to a play, spectator,
As the world unfolds before:
You will know the heart of matter
Should they act two parts or four;
When they cry or tear asunder
From your seat enjoy along
And you'll learn from art to wonder
What is right and what is wrong.

Past and future, ever blending,
Are the twin sides of same page:
New start will begin with ending
When you know to learn from age;
All that was or be tomorrow
We have in the present, too;
But what's vain and futile sorrow
You must think and ask of you;


For the living cannot sever
From the means we've always had:
Now, as years ago, and ever,
Men are happy or are sad:
Other masks, same play repeated;
Diff'rent tongues, same words to hear;
Of your dreams so often cheated,
Have no hope and have no fear.

Hope not when the villains cluster
By success and glory drawn:
Fools with perfect lack of luster
Will outshine Hyperion!
Fear it not, they'll push each other
To reach higher in the fold,
Do not side with them as brother,
Waves that rise can never hold.

Sounds of siren songs call steady
Toward golden nets, astray;
Life attracts you into eddies
To change actors in the play;
Steal aside from crowd and bustle,
Do not look, seem not to hear
From your path, away from hustle,
If they urge or if they cheer;

If they reach for you, go faster,
Hold your tongue when slanders yell;
Your advice they cannot master,
Don't you know their measure well?
Let them talk and let them chatter,
Let all go past, young and old;
Unattached to man or matter,
You remain aloof and cold.

You remain aloof and cold
If they urge or if they cheer;
Waves that rise can never hold,
Have no hope and have no fear;
You must think and ask of you
What is right and what is wrong;
All is old and all is new,
Time goes by, time comes along.”
