Dan Ciachir, The itinerary of a sleepwalker
The article evokes a bohemian character of the last century, the translator Taşcu Gheorghiu who, besides the surrealist poems of his youth, had not written or published his own literature. He was a strange and unique person, highly respected in the literary sphere. He was a prodigious translator, who used to work painstakingly, also admired by many young poets and writers who were aware of his bizarre lifestyle and schedule. Renowned for knowing by heart Craii de Curtea-Veche he had the schedule of Paşadia, meaning that he never went out of his house earlier than 7 pm. Just as the characters of Mateiu I. Caragiale secluded themselves in the past, Taşcu Gheorghiu used to seclude in literature, where he was at ease.
