in front of the poet

In front of a new, genuine poet, you always experience the paradoxical and wonderful feeling that all of a sudden you understand a language so far unknown to you.

—Lucian Blaga (Romanian philosopher and poet, 1895-1951), The √Član of the Island, 1946

from A Blaga Anthology on CD, Dr R.T. Allen
