Gellu Naum. Athanor and Other Pohems. Translated by MARGENTO and MArtin Woodside, with a foreword by MARGENTO. New York: Calypso Editions, 2013,–other-pohems.aspx

Gellu Naum (1915 — 2001) is one of the greatest European poets of 20th century.  Hestarted as an orthodox Surrealist, together with André Breton and Victor Brauner in the Paris of the 1930s, where he pursued a PhD in philosophy from the Sorbonne. After returning to Romania in the early 1940s, he embarked on a solitary and prolific career, riskily immune to the political agenda of the Communist regime. He reshaped surrealism by means of a mode-of-existence poetics that absorbed (often jocosely) erudite eastern and western references along with popular culture and the quotidian, thus managing to fuse a wide range of styles and dictions into a unique discourse, shamanistic and ironical at the same time. His verse contains varied infinities while staying mysteriously homogenous and enlightened by the pursuit of the same unmistaken path.
