Travel in Time by Anişoara Laura Musteţiu

travel in time

 

An earnest collection…

Drawn from her own life experiences and written in a compelling prose, Musteţiu’s poignant debut is highlighted by moments of startling insight into life’s journey, exploring various themes of love, dreams, grief, and memories. The first part, “Adolescent,” is a painfully honest portrait of adolescent love. In “I have got something divine,” Musteţiu draws a relentless portrayal of adolescent relationship and all its related attendant anxieties and insecurities. “I escaped into a sanctuary,” is perfectly rendered depiction of young love. The second part, “In a Foreign Country,” explores themes of immigration, class division, cultural and language disparities, homelessness among other. “Pepina,” delves into the unconditional love of pets and so does the “I saw a homeless man with a parrot.” In “Transylvania, you are always in my heart,” the protagonist melancholy and wishfully remembers their birth country. Refreshing and heartwarming, this short collection with its charming illustration will appeal to every poetry lover.

  1. An incredibe book! Please join me to give a big round of applause to Laura Mustetiu, contemporary poet who’s style is defined by her unique sensibility that makes even a loose string to vibrate.
    There’s a lot we can learn from awesome poets – art of words, precision of emotions, the importance of adding pure beauty, depth and empathy to the world instead of vitriol, ignorance, and close-mindedness – and Laura is a beautiful example of exactly the kind of writers we should all read more of.
    She plays unflinchingly and artfully with the ideas of love, marriage, family, time and space, heart and soul, identity and empowerment; all while inviting you to lose yourself in some truly mesmerizing time travel.
    Laura put the world poetry at feminine today!

  2. I really enjoyed reading these poems and I related to a few of them quite well. Especially “The Emigrant” and how it makes me think about the part of my life when I moved to The United States. There is a lot of emotion put into the writing and a great read!!
