Petre Stoica
(b. 15 February 1931, Peciu Nou, Timiș - d. 21 March 2009, Jimbolia, Timiș) was a Romanian poet, translator, essayist, newspaper and book collector. Associated with the circle around Steaua and the 1960's generation, he contributed in the late 1950's and the early 1960's to the return of lyrical poetry. As early as the late 1960's he developed his signature style, a simple, non-metaphysical style with ocassional influences from traditionalism, Romanian avant-garde and aesthetic oneirism. His poetry (rooted in the traditions of interwar Romanian poetry, but nevertheless original) was somewhat marginal in the years when the metaphorical poetry of Nichita Stănescu was the dominant trend, but has received positive reactions from poets of the 1980's generation (Traian T. Coșovei) and even of the 2000's generation[1]. Marin Mincu considers him, alongside Mircea Ivănescu and A.E. Baconsky, one of the most influential early poets of the banal.
