Critical appraisals

 

"Challenge me to catch you"


George Stanca - journalist, poet, writer:

“This book gives me the opportunity to welcome the debut of a possible great prose writer. So, I expect the Novel from the author. Because Cornelia Alexoi writes amazingly well, plastic and sensitive.”

 

"Calvus Mons"

 

Vasile Poenaru - writer and editor - at the release of the novel:

“This book is extremely innovative. The characters stem from various genres…  We see a very regional speech, but also an extremely scholarly one. We are dealing, I think, with an experimental prose of very good quality.”

 

Florin Stănescu - translator:

Calvus Mons is a novel with features of great originality and literary ability, as daring as they are successful, the author working on them methodically, in detail, through a finely balanced combination of the inspiration factor and the element of perspiration - the effort of meticulous literary elaboration, both at the architectural level and of the elaborated stylistic details.”

 

Daniel Onaca - writer:

“If I were to follow the author's example, leaving myself, in turn, seduced by the charm of the associative game, I would be tempted to consider the novel Calvus Mons the parable of an initiatory itinerary; a journey that, in many ways, resembles that of Dante in his Divine Comedy; it's just that, here,  Hell, Purgatory and Paradise  do not succeed each other as in the Florentine masterpiece, but coexist  and interweave at the foot of a mountain massif, called by the locals The Bald Mountain (hence Calvus Mons – the Latin name of the title).”

 

"Theater as a shrine-fortress"

 

Florin Stănescu - translator:

“We are dealing with a theatrical formula ... not poor theater (no connection with Antonin Artaud) but economical and simple (but not at all simplistic), as accessible on stage as it is complex and deeply semantic.”
