The fourth event in an exciting series of six poetry events that was held in collaboration with the Romanian Cultural Institute exploring contemporary Romanian culture through the eyes of its most accomplished poets.

Miruna Vlada, born in Bucharest in 1986, is a young and provocative Romanian poet. Publishing her first anthology, Ectopic Poems (2004) at just 18, Miruna famously provoked a public debate about ‘feminine’ writing. Her most recent collection, Break Between Veins, was published in 2007. She has been included in anthologies of the most important young Romanian poets and her poetic work has been widely translated across Central and Eastern Europe.

This event was hosted by Amanda Hopkinson, Reader at the School of Literature at the University of East Anglia, who provided an English introduction and placed the poets in context for the English-speaking members of the audience.

Poetry in Romanian was also read and performed in English translation.
