Summary/Abstract: This review touches on Andrei Dobos’ poetry book Spiro, published in 2016 at Charmides publishing house. I hereby argued that his book possesses two kinds of discursive tendencies that seemed more or less to contradict each other in their attempt to offer a unitary perspective. On the one hand, his attempt at creating a neo-bucolic and hymnic voice succeeds precisely because he borrows the posthuman detachment of his younger peers. When, however, he attempts to employ musicality and textual playfulness, the voice quivers and ends up sounding unconvincing.
