Constantin Abaluta

Author, Romanian
Born in 1938 in Bucharest, Constantin Abăluță studied architecture, graduating in 1961. His first volume of poetry was published in 1964, and in 1969 he stopped practicing architecture to devote his time entirely to writing poetry, prose, literary criticism, theater, translating, and drawing (he designed the covers of all of his books, numbering forty volumes, and drew all the illustrations). Several of his poetry books have been translated into French, one volume has been translated into Dutch, and another one into English. The recipient of several Romanian and international prizes, he is the Vice-President of the Romanian PEN Club. (Photo credit: Filme-cărti)
