Romania prides itself with writers that amazed readers. But because Romanian language is not international, some of the writers decided to emigrate (France, USA etc.) and write in international languages. Eugen Ionesco would be the first who had done that. He was a brilliant play writer, who anticipated the Nazi disaster in his play, “The Rhinoceros”. Fortunately, or not, this genius writer lived and wrote in France. It is the same with Emil Cioran, one of the greatest philosophers of modern times.
In the family of great poets we can mention Mihai Eminescu. He is the Romanian poet whose work has been translated in the most international languages and thus welcomed successfully. He is rightfully considered Romania’s National Poet, as he transformed the native language itself with his art skilled instruments. On January, 15th, the day of his birth, a monument was unveiled in his honor in Islamabad, Pakistan, as a symbol of cultural dialogue. Also in 2004, the unveiling of a statue of Mihai Eminescu in Montreal, Canada marked his international acknowledgement, as well as inter-cultural communication.
