Poetry in Translation (XXIII): Doris RUNEY (USA) – “Visul” (“The Dream”)

August 10th, 2005 · Comments Off on Poetry in Translation (XXIII): Doris RUNEY (USA) – “Visul” (“The Dream”) · PEOPLE, Poetry, Translations

My father was born in Bucovina—Stanesti de Jos, and my mother is first generation American-Romanian, from Banat. Consequently I was raised with two languages, two cultures. I spoke Romanian before learning English in school.
I am the founder and artistic director of Tarancuta, a semi-professional Romanian folk dance and music ensemble. I am a published translator (Zalmoxis, 2000) and bilingual writer (“Zalmoxis’s Fireflies”, “The Mulberry Tree”), and currently visiting assistant professor of English at Oakland University. I live with my two sons in Troy, Michigan.
