Corneliu M. Popescu
A poetry translation prize was established in 2003 in commemoration of his work. Called the Popescu Prize, it is awarded bi-annually by the Poetry Society 'for poetry translated from a European language into English'. In the Guardian Review on 20 September 2003, there appeared an article by the poet Alan Brownjohn about his own participation in judging the award for that year. A segment of a translation Popescu made of one of Mihai Eminescu's poems is reproduced in the article, as is a photograph of Popescu.
