Citisem în trecut câteva dintre poeziile mai cunoscute ale lui Macedonski şi, sincer să fiu, aveam aşteptări mult mai mari de la volumul acesta. Se observă clar o predilecţie către arta poetică, dar există o accentuare obsesivă a condiţiei dezavantajate a scriitorului în cadrul societăţii ce apare recursiv în multe dintre poezii, ajungând să îmi inducă impresia unei plângeri continue, repetitive şi pline de monotonie. Părerea generală mi-a fost oarecum îmbunătăţită de rondelurile rozelor, seria ...more

Chiar îmi doream să îi iubesc poeziile lui Macedonski. A reprezentat un personaj controversat, extrem de interesant în viața lui, și ce viață a dus!
Poeziile tind spre modernism, fapt ce mi-a plăcut, mai ales îmbinarea acestuia cu poezia clasică, romantică. Volumele mele preferate sunt „Floarea Sacră” și „Poema Rondelurilor” cu siguranță.
Un poet desăvârșit, recomand tuturor, mai ales a iubitorilor de poezie modernă, neexperimentați în cea clasică.

Debuting as a Neoromantic in the Wallachian tradition, Macedonski went through the Realist-Naturalist stage deemed "social poetry", while progressively adapting his style to Symbolism and Parnassianism, and repeatedly but unsuccessfully attempting to impose himself in the Francophone world. Despite having theorized "instrumentalism", which reacted against the traditional guidelines of poetry, he ...more

“Dacă-aș fi trăsnet v-aș trăsni,
V-aș îneca dacă-aș fi apă,
Și v-aș săpa mormântu-adânc
Dac-aș fi sapă.

Dacă-aș fi ștreang v-aș spânzura,
Dacă-aș fi spadă v-aș străpunge,
V-aș urmări dac-aș fi glonț,
Și v-aș ajunge.

Dar eu, deși rămân ce sunt,
O voce-adâncă îmi murmură
Că sunt mai mult decât orice,
Căci eu, sunt ură.”

“Aveam în casă o pisică,
Era sălbatică de mică,
Dar uneori, și ea,
Părea
Cu ochii că-mi vorbea,
Părea
Că nu mai este rea.”
