About the Book

“Cârneci’s poetry is a carnival of sensory images, strong emotion and brilliant intellect. It is nevertheless moving, vibrantly accessible and necessary reading for anyone interested in contemporary writing in the whole southeastern European region today. Its conscious fusion of Western and Eastern European ideas and cultural influences is unique.”—Fiona Sampson

Magda Cârneci is one of the most innovative and important poets to emerge from Eastern Europe. Chaosmos reflects a world that is chaotic on a local level but cosmically ordered on a larger scale, a chaosmos.
