6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Alexa Ferreira on March 17, 2002
Format: Paperback
... She's obviously one of the best, undiscovered writers in the world!! She first came to my attention through my fiance, who'd torn a poem from a 1997 edition of the "New Yorker" for keeping. After the events of September 11th, she was going through a pile of papers and came across that same poem. To her [and subsequently, myself] the poem resonated deeply with what we were going through. The name of that poem is "In the City of What Once Was" and it appears in this brilliant collection. Her work is alternately beautiful and mournful and it speaks eloquently of her experiences in a war-ravaged land [Ms. Ursa's work has been translated from her native Romanian]. She is at once lyrical, sad and evocative. I urge anyone interested in great poetry to BUY THIS BOOK. I'd also recommend that the major American publishers take a good look at her work!!!
