Mihail Sadoveanu (Romanian pronunciation: occasionally referred to as Mihai Sadoveanu- November 5, 1880 - October 19, 1961) was a Romanian novelist, short story writer, journalist and political figure, who twice served as acting republican head of state under the communist regime (1947-1948 and 1958). One of the most prolific Romanian-language writers, he is remembered mostly for his historical and adventure novels, as well as for his nature writing. An author whose career spanned five decades, Sadoveanu was an early associate of the traditionalist magazine S m n torul, before becoming known as a Realist writer and an adherent to the Poporanist current represented by Via a Rom neasc journal. His books, critically acclaimed for their vision of age-old solitude and natural abundance, are generally set in the historical region of Moldavia, building on themes from Romanias medieval and early modern history. Among them are Neamul oim re tilor (The oim re ti Family), Fra ii Jderi (The Jderi Brothers) and Zodia Cancerului (Under the Sign of the Crab). With Venea o moar pe Siret... (A Mill Was Floating down the Siret...), Baltagul (The Hatchet) and some other works of fiction, Sadoveanu extends his fresco to contemporary history and adapts his style to the psychological novel, Naturalism and Social realism.
