Praise for Syllables of Flesh by Floarea Ţuţuianu

  Floarea Ţuţuianu presents us with erotic poetry of a singular kind, full of magic and the divine: graceful and feline, original, seductive..

Norman Manea, author of The Hooligan’s Return

Floarea Ţuţuianu is a sexy poet who loves language play, and her freighted words load her poetry with desire. Basic to her poetry is a playful narcissistic persona…her provocative femininity grants her the role of a postmodern succubus. Ţţianu really means it when she writes, “I want to be Leda, the swan between my legs”! She is courageous in her erotic language.

Ruxandra Cesereanu, author of Crusader-Woman

The poetry of Floarea Ţuţuianu is not a poetry of the senses, of the joy of physical contact… Preoccupations of a very different order gnaw at the foundation of this poetry: in her embrace, the author has as her partner not the body, but the word.

Eugen Negrici, Romanian critic & literary historian
