Royal Poetry at the launch of Agneta’s book | Present

On a Saturday afternoon at Agnita, hair-themed, the heat of my snack day burns through, I hit the 20th tab. Ilarion Barsan, the lead presenter, invited us to take the poem home. Thus, CronoLogia Publishing House of Sibiu and the association “Valea Hârtibaciului”, in cooperation with the House of Culture “Ilarion Cocișiu” and the Sibiu branch of the Writers’ Union (through its current members), brought home four valuable Hartibaci poets (in order of book presentation: Nicu Ganea and Ioan Gligor). Stopița, Dan Herciu, and Lőrinczi Francisc-Mihai), who have resonated with a warm, select audience by presenting their editorial achievements. A true royal of poetry that gave meaning to a beautiful summer evening.

After the welcome address by Mr. Ilarion Barsan, representative of the “Valea Hârtibaciului” association, the little-known but noteworthy Nicu Ganea book of literature annals was launched. The gesture of publication of the book by the Society of Hartists, at the Chronology Publishing House in Sibiu, through the commendable effort of Mr. Ilarion Barsan, is significant if we take into account the fact that the poems written by Niko Gania, who departed so quickly for the stars found an echo in Poetry lovers hearts. Although the preface to the book, Lenuța Barbu, was not there, I remember the fact that his master named Nicu Ganea “anonymous influenced by genius,” a defining phrase for the lyrical universe given by Ilarion Barsan, curator of the edition, and Lőrinczi Francisc-Mihai, the postface author. The whole audience admired Mr. Andrei Todarcia, who told the life story of Nikko Ganja and who, with tears in his eyes, evoked, with tears in his eyes, the poet’s fate, in some places unhappy, and the way he wrote the poems, citing an unforgettable moment, from the eighties, in Sisnedy, when he read Nikko Ganja The poem “Fluturi nebuni” in Cisnădie in front of more than 500 people, which was appreciated by Sibiu poets, the most famous of which is Dumitru Chiwaru. The Orthodox High Priest Andrei Ianko also noted, in the spoken word, the religiosity of the poet and the greatness of the poem that defines his lyrical vision: “And your love is not a rain like a flood… / whose swift drops longing for me / But how much under a crooked eaves we do not avoid falling / Freshen the soul, what falls with love… “The volume of Niko Ganja’s poems, words of my creed, also enjoys great drawings, illustrations by Silviu D. I would like to add that the daughter of the poet Nico Gania, who lives in Spain, was present at this very important event. At the end of the book presentation, Sir Ilarion Barsan handed the poet’s daughter, Anna, the manuscripts of poems printed in the volume, a very emotional and well-chosen moment in the event.

This was followed by an exposition of the volume of the poet Ioan Gilgor Stupita from Ghijasa de Jos: “Gospel of Yunde. My transparency bookIkon Publishing, Bucharest, 2021. This volume was presented by authors Mihai Posada and Maria Daniela Bonozan, members of the Sibiu branch of the Writers’ Union. Ioan Gilgor Stupita’s work includes volumes of poems, prose and individual books devoted to a geographical space that is little reflected in the literature: Ghijasa de Jos But I believe that, like Ioan Popa who imposed Purpura (The Land of Dry Land) in contemporary literature, Ioan Gilgor Stupita, through his work, highlights a new mythical literary area, always evoking nostalgia, but also with responsibility. The Roman village lies” In the heart of the country” in the heart of her artistic world, Mondi axis, The central axis of the cultural space was reflected in the study of the village of Ghijasa de Jos, but also in the writer’s “studies of the heart” which correspond perfectly to the topos reflected in hundreds of pages. Ioan Gligor Stopița, the name chosen for the published books, is a pseudonym. The real name is Ionel Stopița. John is the name of a dead brother, the poet’s father and grandfather. Born on March 13, 1951, in the village of Ghijașa de Jos, Nocrich in Sibiu County, on the Hârtibaciului Valley, which I often call the Green Valley, Ioan Gligor Stopița attended the first primary classes in the village. Place of birth and Theoretical High School in Agita. The editorial secretary, and then the editor-in-chief of the magazine “Rapsodia” from Sibiu, carried out a very rich activity, actively participating in the cultural life of Sibiu. With patience, humility and perseverance, he reflected in the pages of the magazine the most important cultural and literary events of the past two decades. Rhapsodia summarizes records, reviews, book releases, major events, poems, prose, interviews and pages of young Sibiu creators over 200 issues. In the volume released in Agnita, IonDuh says “Poetry is not allegorical justice.” It is “the ashes of self-sacrifice”. It is the word that devours the entire lyrical universe, and goes deep into the fibers of the being who is afraid of himself. The nadir of the poetic subject, the lyrical discourse, the entirety of the text becomes a form of understanding “I am another, but I still exist”, through the original form of poetic expression. A symbolic form of an original geographical space imposed on the contemporary literary scene through the writings of Ewan Gilgor Stupita. In poetic recitation, the author preferred to delight the audience of a song with poems from the volume “Cântărea cantarăr”, and at the same time evoke nostalgic moments during his high school, which softened the atmosphere and delighted the hearts of the listeners.

Dan Hirsio, the poet lauded by Irina Petrash and awarded the Debut Award for the Cluj Chapter of the Writers’ Union in 2009, introduced the “Tax Vice”. A novel, an original beginner volume that gives meaning to creativity, as Irina Petrau says: “Dan Herseau plays his rhythms and rhythm perfectly, his relationship to the text is free and unstressed, but also a translator of anxiety. (…) Freedom of words has a wave of despair in the background because the pain is lurking “. Dan Hirsio’s book won the Niram Art Prize for Poetry, Reflexos Cup, Madrid, 2010. Dan Hirsio’s poems have been translated into Spanish and Portuguese. La Agneta, a poet born in 1973, recited many poems that touched the hearts of those present through beautiful irony and language uninhibited by metaphors. The tax on vice, as the poet himself admitted, was driven by the original lyrical expression.

Last but not least was the poet Lőrinczi Francisc-Mihai, who brought the latest volumes published to the public from his hometown, also in CronoLogia in Sibiu: “Afternoon with Mocăniță and cu libulele” (Poems) and “De próbso” (Essays). The two books were presented by Mihai Posada and Maria Daniela Buñozan, who noted in their words the originality of the writings, the unmistakable style and the value of poetry. Mihai Posada confirmed the fact that this volume contains “The Introduction transfiguration, signed by Ioan Marco and the cover illustration, which shows a strong plastic talent, was made by the author’s only thirteen-year-old daughter, Francesca. The title includes, as a lyrical matrix metaphor, “mogănița” from Valea Hârtibaciului – a poetic medium in itself, extracted from the text the poem(wooden beams); “The train goes straight to heaven” (Polovani landfill). Mr. Posada also believes that the volume is, In factan invitation to heaven Lörinczi Francisc-Mihai never tires of evoking: “Going home” is the full text Haiku Transylvania. It’s the call “to my heart” (petition). Mocănita who passes without error through the “emerald meadow”, wonderful (for friends) and invites readers to be a part of his poetic journey which he considers a miracle in the purest sense of the word.

After the lyrical performances of the poets, the mayor of Agneta, Mr. Alain Chiao Gul, was invited to speak, where he expressed his happiness at the poets’ birth and their training in the Hartibasiului Valley as guests. He impressed the public with a speech in which he aroused the desire to promote the authentic culture of the region, and unveiled busts of local figures who will remain in the people’s memory, to be close to those who write the history of the place. Professor Voichița Pădure concluded, through a to praise It brought to Dan Hercio and Lorenzi Francis Mihai, his former students of whom she is proud, a special cultural evening, which reopened the public’s taste for poetry, because “Man lives in poetry” (Helderlin). And I cannot conclude without mentioning this wonderful and chosen audience, who, in turn, conveyed their emotions to the poets’ table: Director of the Technical College “AT Laurian” Agnita, Professor Bogdana Liston, Director of the “GD Teusch” High School. School, Professor Florich Marina, Cultural Counselor of Agneta Town Hall, Yulia Zikli, daughter of the poet Anna, and her friends, Reformed priest Andrei Kuzma, Professor Larisa Stoica, the whole family of Sir Ilarion Barsan (wife, three children from Germany and grandchildren; daughter, Bianca Bogdan, told me, They are all glad that they were with their father at this important moment in his life, because he appreciated the poet Niko Ganja so much and because he was able to publish his poems in an unusual size), family members, friends and, quite surprisingly, a student of the National College “Gh. Lazar “from Sibiu Maya, with her mother. (Maya is the gym’s promotion chief, with an average of 10 and the highest average in the national rating, winner of the national stage of the Romanian Olympiad.)

If I were to sum up what happened on the evening of August 20, 2022 at Agnita, I would say that it was a magical evening of poetry in which the lively sentiments of the authors were expressed to the public and from the selected audience to the poets of the Hârtibaciului Valley. Congratulations and thanks to Mr. Ilarion Barsan, the host of an exceptional encounter!
