Publication Type
Codex Verse Chronicle
Description
Versified account of the replacement by the Ottoman Porte of the Wallachian Prince Alexandru Constantin Moruzi (Prince of Moldavia: 1792- 1793, 1802-1806, 1806-1807; Prince of Wallachia: 1793-1796, 1799-1801; † 1816). Composed soon after the event (20 August 1796), the poem ends on a philosophical note, claiming that all wordly deeds are nothing more than ephemeral dreams incapable of sweetening a bitter reality.
