Ariadne’s Veil by Ioana Ieronim (online poetry collection)

Contemporary Literature Press, under The University of Bucharest, in conjunction with The British Council, The Romanian Cultural Institute, and The Embassy of the Republic of Ireland, announces the publication of „Ariadne’s Veil”, a poetry collection written in English by Ioana Ieronim: „Less than three months ago, we published a book of fiction written in the Romanian language by Doris Plantus, who teaches at an American university. We are now publishing a book of poetry written in the English language, this time, by the Romanian poet Ioana Ieronim. Although the former was born in America, and the latter in Romania, both writers have similar interests: they are also translators from and into Romanian, having translated for the screen and the stage at some point, and both of them are culturally very active promoting Romanian literature. What is more, Ioana Ieronim was the Romanian cultural attaché in Washington for four years in the 1990’s”.

Ioana Ieronim is now a „freelancer”. She translates poetry into Romanian, she writes poetry in both Romanian and English, she even writes theatre plays. It must be added that she has also translated some of Shakespeare’s plays into Romanian.

This book of 41 poems, all written in English, has something about it that strikes the reader: it is crystal clear.

Ariadne’s Veil has two heroes: Ariadne and Theseus. According to the ancient myth, Ariadne helped Theseus come out alive from the labyrinth. She spun a thread for him to follow. That thread is the poem itself. As for the meaning of the thread, the veil, and the labyrinth — possibly connected to the Romanian city of Râşnov, more than 800 years old, where Ioana Ieronim spent her childhood years —, the reader will find all those things out while reading her poems. They may seem clear, but that is only a first impression. The challenge is to find Daedalus behind Ariadne and Theseus and their thread.

Lidia Vianu

Ioana Ieronim: Ariadne’s Veil , edited by  Lidia Vianu is formally launched on Tuesday 23 July 2013. But it is available for consultation and downloading on receipt of this Press Release, at the following internet address:

O dolce selva solitaria, amica
de’ miei pensieri sbigottiti e stanchi,
mentre Borea ne’ dì torbidi e manchi
d’orrido giel l’aere e la terra implica,
5 e la tua verde chioma ombrosa, antica,
come la mia, par d’ognintorno imbianchi,
or, che ’nvece di fior vermigli e bianchi
ha neve e ghiaccio ogni tua piaggia aprica,
a questa breve e nubilosa luce
10 vo ripensando che m’avanza, e ghiaccio
gli spirti anch’io sento e le membra farsi;
ma più di te dentro e d’intorno agghiaccio,
ché più crudo Euro a me mio verno adduce,
più lunga notte e dì più freddi e scarsi.
(O dolce selva)

Perchè le nostre genti

Questa terra fatal non si rivolga.
O Italia, a cor ti stia
Far ai passati onor; che d’altrettali
Oggi vedove son le tue contrade,
Nè v’è chi d’onorar ti si convegna.

Faţa de masă se ntinde

Fantomica
Umbră a scobitoarei urmăreşte

Soarele îmbracă oscioarele
Într-o nouă carne de aur

Pistruiată
Abundenţa se caţără
Pe ameţitoare firimituri

Şiraguri ale somnolenţei
Au străpuns coaja albă

Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
„Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she
With silent lips. „Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”
(„The New Colossus”) http://www.poemhunter.com/poem/the-new-colossus/

Glory be to God for dappled things –
For skies of couple-colour as a brinded cow;
For rose-moles all in stipple upon trout that swim;
Fresh-firecoal chestnut-falls; finches’ wings;
Landscape plotted and pieced – fold, fallow, and plough;
And áll trádes, their gear and tackle and trim.

All things counter, original, spare, strange;
Whatever is fickle, freckled (who knows how?)
With swift, slow; sweet, sour; adazzle, dim;
He fathers-forth whose beauty is past change:
Praise him.
