Camil Petrescu

Camil Petrescu

Camil Petrescu (April 22,1894May 14 1957; born and died in Bucharest) was a Romanian playwright, novelist, and philosopher.


Camil Petrescu lost both his parents early in life and was raised by a relative (or a nanny from the Moşilor suburb; the sources remain quite unclear on this).

Petrescu went to primary school at Obor, and to high school at Saint Sava National College, where he wrote his very first poem. Being very poor, he learned assiduously, worked to support himself, and relatively late—at the age of 29—he began his studies in Philosophy at the University of Bucharest. He was a friend of Mihail Sebastian.

In 1916, Petrescu was drafted and sent to the battlefields of then raging World War I, where he was wounded and taken prisoner by the Austro-Hungarians. Freed in 1918, he depicted his war experiences in his 1930 novel "Ultima noapte de dragoste, întâia noapte de război" ("The Last Night of Love, the First Night of War"). In 1933, Petrescu wrote the novel "Patul lui Procust" ("Procrustes' Bed"). He was a teacher in Timişoara, and director of the National Theater Bucharest. He was also a member of the Romanian Academy from 1947.
