Dumitru Crudu(Moldova, 1967)
In 1994 Dumitru Crudu debuted with two collections of poems at once. Since then, he has also written seven plays, novels and collections of short stories. Crudu's narrative poems recount personal histories and, at the same time, paint a more general picture of life in the former Soviet republic. Crudu's poetry humorously sheds light on everyday life, but also on major topics such as illness and death. His poetry is right at the centre of reality which it then proceeds to render in a completely wilful way.
