Dimitrie Stelaru – Dogs

Dimitrie Stelaru’s poem Câini was first published in the nationalist paper Universul literar in 1942, shortly after the fascist ban of the Albatros magazine. The poem, a brief fable in verse, has now been translated into English and published by Sea Urchin as Dogs. Against the backdrop of Ion Antonescu’s pact with Nazi Germany during World War II and the Romanian Orthodox Church’s alliance with the death cult of the fascist Iron Guard, it would be hard not to read references to the political situation in Romania of the period in this compact and powerful poem. The Sea Urchin chapbook Dogs has been published in an edition of 15 hand made copies. Artwork & translation: Ben Schot. Read more and order
