Incursions in the Feminine Textual Identity in the 1970s and the 1980s or On Ethics and Heretic
The present article is a review of Daniela Moldoveanu’s monograph on Confessional Feminine Poetry. The reviewer states that the central axiom of the monograph is that everything transformable into poetry origins in biography – which, naturally, is both a useful and a dangerous belief. Moldoveanu analyzes in her book prominent Romanian women poets who made their debut after 1968, such as Mariana Marin, Marta Petreu, and Angela Marinescu; in order to achieve a detached and informed perspective upon them, she compares them with the famous women poets of the American confessional school, mainly with Sylvia Plath and Anne Sexton, detecting isomorphisms and contextual differences.
Keywords: confessional feminine poetry, poetry, biography, mariana marin, marta petreu, angela marinescu.
