||Ion Minulescu (January 6, 1881 – April 11, 1944) was a
Romanian avant-garde poet, novelist, short story writer, journalist,
literary critic, and playwright. Often publishing his works under the
pseudonyms I. M. Nirvan and Koh-i-Noor (the latter being derived from the
famous diamond), he journeyed to Paris, where he was heavily influenced by
the growing Symbolist movement and Parisian Bohemianism. He had a major
influence on modern literature in Romania, and was among the first local
poets to use free verse.
