Samuel Osmond Barber II (March 9, 1910 – January 23, 1981) was an American composer of orchestraloperachoral, andpiano music. He is one of the most celebrated composers of the 20th century: music critic Donal Henahan stated that “Probably no other American composer has ever enjoyed such early, such persistent and such long-lasting acclaim.”[1] His Adagio for Strings (1936) has earned a permanent place in the concert repertory of orchestras. He was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Music twice: for his opera Vanessa (1956–57) and for the Concerto for Piano and Orchestra (1962). Also widely performed is hisKnoxville: Summer of 1915 (1947), a setting for soprano and orchestra of a prose text by James Agee. At the time of his death, nearly all of his compositions had been recorded.[1]

Un Vis Amanat (de Langston Hughes): tradus de George-B

Un Vis Amanat

(de Langston Hughes)

(Traducere  de George-b)

Ce se-ntampla cu un vis amanat?

Se usuca precum o stafida in soare?

Sau supureaza ca o rana —

si se scurge?

Pute precum carnea putrezita?

Ori se zahariceste —

Precum un sirop dulce?

Poate atarna,

Ca o povara grea.

Ori poate explodeaza?
