Leana Malancioiu

Leana Malancioiu was born in 1940. Of her collection, Climbing the Mountain, a critic wrote: ‘No book of poetry published in the Communist era contained a clearer political protest, without stylistic distraction… or metaphorical caution.’ A collection of her poems, After the Raising of Lazarus, translated by Eiléan Ní Chuilleanáin, was published by Southword Editions in 2005.
