    Judita Pamfil

    born and raised in Transylvania, Romania, grew up speaking and hearing Romanian, Hungarian and French in her home.  At school and privately, she learned German, Russian, Latin, and French.  Currently, a resident of Port Hope, Ontario, Canada, Ms. Pamfil was brought to “English Canada” by a decision prompted by the reverberations of the 1970 October Crisis in Quebec.  Although seven years after the fact, it appeared that this significant event did still inform and mold political attitudes and public sentiments.  A well meaning diplomat at the Canadian Embassy in Athens, Greece where Judita’s family was waiting [as political refugees from Communist Romania] for the landed immigrant status to Canada, decreed that Toronto, rather than Montreal would be a safe haven for them.  And so it was that Judita and her family started their life in an English speaking milieu, in spite of the fact that their acquaintance with the language was quite minimal. Thirty or so years later, Ms. Pamfil presented and published Moon Songs, her poems imagined, felt and written in English.  Judita, in addition to being a multi-lingual poet, is a figurative and abstract oil painter who has also created mono-type prints for a children’s book.  Learn more about Judita in publisher, bill berry’s interview, “Conversation with Judita Pamfil.”  http://aaduna.org/summer2014/conversations/judita-pamfil/
