A Deafening Silence is the first UK publication by one of Romania’s leading contemporary poets. Selecting poems from over twenty years’ output, this bilingual volume offers an ideal introduction to her work. 
     Magda Cârneci is also an art essayist and prose writer, and currently lives between Paris and Bucharest. A member of the well-known “Generation of the ’80s” in Romanian literature, she became actively involved in the political and cultural Romanian scene after the 1989 Revolution. At present she is president of PEN Club Romania, and is also a member of the European Cultural Parliament. 
     Her poems have been translated into thirteen languages and have appeared in many anthologies and international reviews. Her Ph.D. thesis was published under the title Art and Power in Romania 1945-1989 (Paris, 2007, in French), and in 2011 her novel FEM was nominated for several national prizes. She has also published several volumes of essays.
     She has translated a number of British and American poets into Romanian, such as Seamus Heaney, Allen Ginsberg, Menna Elfyn, Carolyn Forché, Christopher Merrill, Fiona Sampson, Medbh McGuckian, Sylvia Plath, Marianne Moore and Yang Lian, among others.
