Lucian Blaga (1895-1961) is judged by many to be Romania's most original philosopher and greatest poet of the twentieth century. His work has remained, up to now, little known in the English-speaking world. This book represents one of the first efforts to make Blaga's work accessible to a wider audience. His attachment to Expressionist ideals is discernible in his treatment of the characters primarily as vehicles of ideas and his preference for primitive nature over the cultural metropolis. This is Blaga's first play and one of his most important literary works, underlining much of his philosophy and reflecting his poetry. The book includes an introduction by Keith Hitchins of the University of Illinois, one of the leading historians of Romania in the United States. Here, he discusses the life of Lucian Blaga and the importance of his literary and philosophical works.
