A young poet from Iaşi, Cristian Bodnărescu, shot down the world record at... poem, composing the longest romantic poem of universal literature. Cristian is a journalist with studies in philosophy, and this is his first appearance in the sphere of literature.
The previous record was held until recently by a 126 years old poem, also Romanian: "Evening Star" by Mihai Eminescu, recognized in 2009 by the World Record Academy in Miami, as the longest poem, with 91 quatrains and 364 stanzas of verse.
The poem "She Demon" is, besides the world record of romantic poetry, "an original artistic work, a penetration of the demonic spirit world, an attempt to get starting finding a truth. The poem is apparently influenced by romanticism, but dominant is the fabulous perpetuity", as stated professor Theodore Teo-Marsalcovschi.
Cristian Bodnărescu's poem, of 109 quatrains, will appear in volume in early October, at "Renaissance Publishing House" in Bucharest. Now some details still to be added to the final form of poems and the translations in English, to be approved by the World Record Academy.
