Alexandru Vlahuta

Alexandru Vlahuta Alexandru Vlahuta was born in September 5, 1858 in Plasesti (today named Alexandru Vlahuta), Romania in a very poor family. He is one of the greatest Romanian writers.

Biography and Career :

Between 1867 and 1878 he studied in Barlad. At school he had to endure many humiliations from his teachers and from his wealthy colleagues because he was poor (as well as Ion Creanga, Slavici, Cosbuc). Because he didn't afford to pay his school he was forced to work as a servant.

He finished high-school in 1898 and after that he became a student at the Law faculty in Buchare st. After one year he had to quit the faculty because he didn't have the necessary money.

Alexandru Vlahuta worked as a teacher in Targoviste but he was fired because in his articles he criticized the society. After a short wile he goes to Galati where the will be a lawyer. He will work with many prisoners, victims of the social injustice and he will get to know the miserable life of the convicted men. Because he doesn't like the lawyer's life, he leaves Galati and moves in Bucharest. From 1867 till 1878 he will work here as a teacher.

He was contemporary with Mihai Eminescu, I.L.Caragiale and Barbu Stefanescu- Delavrancea. He worshiped Eminescu and this thing is seen in his first poems that were similar with Eminescu's. But after a while he managed to create a style of his own.

Alexandru Vlahuta wrote many poems, such as: "The sin", "Yesterday, today and tomorrow", "The moon and the night", "To Eminescu", "Delendum", "To mom", "Iulia Hasdeu", "Where are our dramers", "Love", "The first lesson", "The eternal song", "Waves", "Letter to an old man", "When I have nothing to write about".
