Emil Cioran (1911 - 1995)
He was born in Rasinari, Romania and educated at Bucharest University. A scholarship from the French Institute in Bucharest brought him in 1937 to Paris.
Emil Cioran's works constitute what the American novelist and critic William Gass has called "a philosophical romance on modern themes of alienation, absurdity, boredom, futility, decay, the tyranny of history, the vulgarities of change, awareness as a agony, reason as disease. "His friend Samuel Beckett, another exile in Paris, was one of many who helped Cioran out financially and was repaid by his advice.

a berdadera eleganzia moral pende en l\'arte de presentar as nuestras bitorias como redotas
a muerte ye un estato de perfeuzión, l\'unico á l\'alcanze de un mortal
a unica traza de salbaguardar a soledá ye ferir a tot o mundo, prenzipiando por aquers a qui aimamos
charrar ye empreñador nomás entre espritos consagratos á asolar os propios dandaleos
no abitamos en un país, abitamos en una luenga
nomás escubrimos o sabor d\'as nuestros diyas cuando amagamos a obligazión de tenen un destín
nomás tien combizións qui no ha profundizato cosa
todas as anomalías nos seduzen; en primer lugar a bida, anomalía por eszelenzia
una patria ye un soporifero ta cada inte. No saperbanos imbidiar -o compadezer- pro a ros chodigos por no tener denguna o por no tener-las más que prebisionals, prenzipiando por Israel
