Abstract:The article begins with a short introduction to the life and work of the Romanian writer Geo Dumitrescu (1920–2004), who is considered to be a path-breaking poet of the post-war generation, and to the discourse about the ideological impact of the communist party on his lyrics.
Furthermore, it treats the perception of the writer in nowerdays Romania, outlining the debates between literary critics about his positioning in the Romanian history of literature, his meaning for the following generations of writers and the character of his work: poetry versus anti-poetry, mysticism versus realism, irony versus lack of humour and dogmatism.
In addition, this contribution contains comparative observations about the perception of Dumitrescu’s lyrics in the German-speaking world and searches for reasons for the fact that he’s largely unknown in this context.
The included analysis of three exemplary poems contains, at first, a short interpretation with regards to style, form and content, as well as a critical examination of the translations of the selected lyrics by reputable translators. These are opposed to commented new translations by the author of this contribution, aiming to correspond to the specifics of Dumitrescu’ s language to the greatest possible extent. Hereby, the outlined character of his lyrics is illustrated in more detail.
