Description - Chaosmos by Magda Carneci
Carneci is a widely acclaimed Romanian poet, essayist and art critic, and 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 "carnival of sensory images, strong emotion, and brilliant intellect", according to Fiona Sampson.
