AVASILICHIOAEI, Oana. Abandon. Toronto: Wolsak and Wynn, 2005. First Edition. 8vo. Perfect bound into Wrappers. New. ISBN: 1894987055. 77 pp. You will be startled into remembering what the birthright of poetry is when you read Abandon. Like her aunt, who "tended a fire all night/as the bear circled her campsight," Avasilichioaei candles us through eight centuries of the ruins of her country of origin, Romania. As a Canadian poet, she not only searches for her "own mythology, " in her return visit to Romania and her preoccupation with its fabled illegitimate daughter of Stephen the Great, but she also exposes the collective narrative we have created as a self-destructing world forgetting itself: "on this stage there are no actors/just puppets hanging with no puppeteers." $15.00.
