Bart, Jean


(pseudonym of Eugeniu Botez). Born Nov. 28, 1874, in Burdujeni; died May 12, 1933. Rumanian writer.

Bart’s first sketches and articles appeared in workers’ newspapers. He also wrote travelers’ sketches and stories in which the romance of the sea serves as background for the hard lot of toilers, fishermen, and dockworkers. Bart’s best work, Europolis (1933; Russian translation, 1958), concerns the life of a port city.
