Critics about

“Ioana Nicolaie is an author who cannot and will not cheat."


“With honesty and grace, Ioana Nicolaie adds another dimension to the ‘canonical’ female identity. Her phrasing has a specific inner rhythm, so-called naïve inversions of topic, with cloudy, hesitant, dreamy contours. Proper to Ioana Nicolaie is the envelopment of raw biography in a tender, almost enchanted aura of images and affects.”


“Ioana Nicolaie is a poet whose writing is singular in Romania - a feminine, intelligent, profound, seductive, male-reader-friendly writing.”

(Marius CHIVU)
