Mihai Eminescu Life

Mihail Eminovici (born January 1850 – June 15, 1889) was a Romantic poet, novelist, and journalist, widely regarded as Romania's most influential and influential Romanian writer, as well as Romania's first modern poet.

Eminescu was a strong supporter of the Junimea literary society and worked as an editor for the newspaper Timpul ("The Time"), the Conservative Party's official newspaper (1880–1918).

His poetry appeared when he was 16 years old, and when he was 19 years old, he went to Vienna to study.

During a meeting that was held on January 25, 1902, Titu Maiorescu's manuscripts, which were 46 volumes and approximately 14,000 pages, were donated by Titu Maiorescu as a gift to the Romanian Academy.

Luceafarul (The Evening Star/The Daystar/The Lucifer/The Daystar), Oda mètre antic (Ode in Ancient Meter), and the five Letters are among the notable works.

He often used metaphysical, mythological, and historical topics in his poetry. His father, Gheorghe Eminovici of Caline?ti, a Moldavian village in Bucovina, which was then part of the Austrian Empire, was his father (although his father came from Banat).

He crossed the border into Moldavia and settled in Ipote?ti, near the town of Boto?ani.

He married Raluca Iuraşcu, an heir to an old aristocratic Moldavian family.

Eminescu's birthday date is recorded in a Junimea registry as 22 December 1849, although Eminescu's birth date is 18 December 1849, where Eminescu studied.

Despite this, Titu Maiorescu's (1889), a student at the University of Botoşani, referred to N.D. Giurescu's findings and concluded on the time and place of Mihai Eminescu's birth on January 15, 1850.

This date came from several sources, among which there was a collection of christenings from the archives of the Uspenia (Domneasca) Church of Boto?ani; within this file, the date of birth was "January 1850" and the date of christening was the 21st of the same month.

The date of his birth was announced by the poet's elder sister, Aglae Drogli, who said that the village of Ipote?ti was where he was born.


Mihail (as he appears in baptismal records) or Mihail (the more common name for the name he used) was born in Botoşani, Moldavia. In his parents' home, he spent his early childhood in Botoşani and Ipotești. He attended Cernescuut from 1858 to 1866. He finished 4th grade as the 5th of 82 students, after which he spent two years in gymnasium.

In 1866, there are the first signs of Eminescu as a writer. In January of this year, Romanian teacher Aron Pumnul died and his students in Cernăut published a pamphlet named "M. Eminovici" in which a poem entitled "La Mormântul" appears. In Iosif Vulcan's literary magazine Familia in Pest, De-aş habe (If I Had) was published on February 25. This was the start of a long line of published poems (and occasionally translated from German). In addition, it was Iosif Vulcan, who disliked the Slavic source suffix "-ici" of the young poet's last name, who chose Mihai Eminescu's more prominent Romanian "nom de plume" Mihai Eminescu.

He joined Iorgu Caragiale's troupe in 1867 as a clerk and narrator; the next year, he moved to Mihai Pascaly's troupe. Both of these actors were among the best Romanian theatrical troupes of their day, including Matei Millo and Fanny Tardini-Vlădicescu. He quickly settled in Bucharest, where he became a clerk and copyist for the National Theater at the end of November. He continued to write and publish poems during this time. He also paid his rent by translating hundreds of pages of a book by Heinrich Theodor Rötscher, but this never resulted in a finished product. He began Geniu pustiu (Wasted Genius), a book that was unfinished in 1904 and published posthumously in 1904.

On April 1, 1869, he was one of the co-founders of the "Orient" literary circle, whose interests included the gathering of Romanian folklore and documents relating to Romanian literary history. Various members of the "Orient" group were given orders to travel to different provinces on June 29. Eminescu was assigned Moldavia. He met Iorgu, a military officer, in Cișmigiu Gardens in the summer, but Iorgu refused to force him to rekindle his family ties.

He departed Pascaly's troupe in 1869 and moved to Cernăut and Iaşi. He returned to his family; his father gave him a regular allowance to attend studies in Vienna in the fall. He continued to write and publish poetry, particularly on the occasion of the death of the former emperor of Wallachia, Barbu Dimitrie tirbei ("On the Death of Prince tirbei"), as usual.

Emilia Poirier studied in Vienna from October 1869 to 1872. At the Faculty of Philosophy and Law, he did not fulfill the requirements to become a university student (as he did not have a baccalaureate degree). He was involved in student life, befriended Ioan Slavici, and became acquainted with Vienna through Veronica Micle; now a contributor to Convorbiri Literare (Literary Conversations), edited by Junimea (The Youth). Petre P. Carp, Vasile Pogor, Theodor Rosetti, Iacob Negruzzi, and Titu Maiorescu, Eminescu's founders, retained their political and cultural clout over Eminescu for the remainder of his life. Venere and Madonă (Venus and Madonna), Eminescu's poet, Iacob Negruzzi, Convorbiri Literare's editor, traveled to Vienna to visit him. In a Viennese café, Negruzzi would later explain how he could pick Eminescu out of a crowd of young people by his "romantic" appearance: long hair and gaze lost in reflection.

Eminescu wrote three articles in 1870 in Federación under the pseudonym "Varro" on the situation of Romanians and other minorities in the Austro-Hungarian Empire. He later became a journalist for Pest's newspaper Albina (The Bee). He lived in Berlin from 1872 to 1874, thanks to a stipend provided by Junimea.

He worked as the head of the Central Library in Iași, substitute teacher, school inspector for Iași and Vaslui, and editor of the journal Curierul de Iași, all thanks to his friendship with Titu Maiorescu, the rector of the University of Iași from 1874 to 1877. He continued to publish in Convorbiri Literare. He was also a good friend of Ion Creangà, a writer who was inspired to become a writer and welcomed to the Junimea literary club.

He moved to Bucharest, where he was first journalist, then (1880) editor-in-chief of the newspaper Timpul (The Time). Scrisorile, Luceafărul, Odă metru antic, etc. were written during this period. The bulk of his influential editorial pieces are from 1877-1878, when Romania was fighting the Ottoman Empire in the Russo-Turkish war that brought about international recognition of Romanian independence, but only under the condition of bestowing Romanian citizenship to all subjects of Jewish faith. According to Eminescu, Romania would have to fork out southern Bessarabia to Russia in exchange for northern Dobruja, a former Ottoman province on the Black Sea.

The 1880s were a time of famine and decay in the poet's life, culminating in his death in 1889. The particulars of this are also being discussed.

From 1883 – when Eminescu's personal tragedy and his more complicated health issues became apparent – to 1886, the poet was treated in Austria and Italy by specialists who managed to get him on his feet, as demonstrated by his good friend, writer Ioan Slavici. Eminescu had a nervous breakdown and was cared for by Romanian doctors, in particular Julian Bogdan and Panait Zosin in 1886. After being hospitalized in a nervous disorders hospice in Neamţ Monastery, the poet was immediately diagnosed with syphilis. Firstly, massages in Botoşani, which were applied by Dr. Itszak, and then in Bucharest at Dr. Alexandru A. Suciu's sanatorium, where he was injected with mercuric chloride from February to June 1889. Eminescu died as a result of mercury poisoning, according to Professor Irinel Popescu, corresponding member of the Romanian Academy and president of the Academy of Medical Sciences of Romania. The poet was "treated" by a group of incompetent doctors and jailed in misery, which also shortened his life, according to him. Mercury was not approved as a syphilis treatment in Western Europe in the 19th century due to its adverse effects.

Mihai Eminescu died at 4 a.m. on June 15th at the Caritas Institute, a sanatorium run by Dr. Suciuu and located on Bucharest's Plantelor Street Sector 2. Eminescu's last wish was a glass of milk, which the attending doctor slipped through the "cell" where he lived in the metallic peephole. "I'm crumbled" he was reported to have whispered in response to this plea. On the next day, he was officially declared dead, and legal papers to that effect were prepared by doctors Suciuu and Petrescu, who also published the official version. This information is seen as ambiguous, because the poet's cause of death is not specifically stated, and there is no indication of any other underlying condition that may have caused such sudden death. In fact, both the poet's medical file and autopsy report reveal signs of a mental illness rather than physical condition. In addition, the brain could not be examined during Dr. Tomescu's autopsy, then by Dr. Marinescu from Babeş-Bolyai University's laboratory, where it quickly decomposed on an open window.

In an article published by the newspaper Universul on June 28, 1926, one of the first hypotheses that disagreed with the post mortem findings for Eminescu's cause of death was published. According to this story, Eminescu died after another patient, Petre Poenaru, a former headmaster in Craiova, struck him in the head with a board.

At that time, Dr. Vineş, the artist assigned to Eminescu in Caritas, argued that the poet's death was caused by an infection related to his head injury. In particular, the head wound was infected, transforming into an erysipelas, which then spread to the face, neck, upper limbs, and abdomen. "Eminescu's death was not due to head injury, which had largely recovered, but not due to an older endocarditis (diagnosed by late professor N. Tomescu)," Eminescu târziu writes in the same paper, which was cited by Nicolae Georgescu in his book "Eminescu."

Both contemporary specialists, mainly physicians who have been involved in the Eminescu case, refute both hypotheses about the poet's death. According to them, the poet died as a result of cardiovascular poisoning. According to several eminescologists, Eminescu was wrongly diagnosed and treated, aiming for his expulsion from public life. Dr. Julian Bogdan of Iacetate, paralytic, and on the verge of dementia due to alcohol use, and syphilitic gummas emerged on the brain, and Eminescu was diagnosed since 1886 as syphilitic, hemolytic, and on the verge of dementia. Dr. Panait Zosin, who consulted Eminescu on 6 November 1886, wrote that patient Eminescu suffered from a "mental alienation" caused by the emergence of syphilis and increased by alcoholism. According to new studies, the poet was not suffering from syphilis.

During the visit, King Charles is expected to stay in the country for five days, his first one since the coronation last month. On his walk in Valea Zalanului, Szeklerland, Romania, where he owns a private estate, he seemed relaxed. In the late 90s, King Charles bought the estate in the village, which is 250 kilometers north of Bucharest, and has visited the area regularly. The monarch arrived at the palace yesterday and was greeted by locals who gifted him with flowers. He was seen smiling as he shook hands with citizens of the public outside the estate's gates.
