The poet Weigl assisted the Romanian Ursu - who has spent much time in the States - with this translation of her work, which first began appearing in Bucharest in 1977. Erotic and meditative, Ursu's poems also record her stay in the US as a Fulbright Fellow at Penn State (where Weigl teaches), and the "sad aura" of Eastern Europe shadows her poems lamenting, predictably, American consumerism and naivete. Her best ones pay tribute to Ovid and Ezra Pound, whose fractured lyricism she often echoes in poems about her native land, upon which her reputation will develop. (Kirkus Reviews)
The poems in Angel Riding a Beast are the stunning expression of the Romanian poet Liliana Ursu's years in America. The sadness and paradoxes of exile and the clarity of a cross-cultural awareness become for Ursu the psychological and descriptive framework for poems infused with the emotion and images of erotic longing and spiritual loneliness.
