Eugen Jebeleanu (24 April 1911 – 21 August 1991), Romanian poet, was born in Câmpina, where he attended elementary school. After graduating from high school in Brasov at age 11 in 1922, he published his first poems five years later in the literary review Viata literara. His first book of poetry, Schituri cu soare (" Sketes with Sun"), appeared in 1929, the year he moved to Bucharest to study law at the University of Bucharest. He published another volume of poems, Inimi sub sabii ("Hearts under Swords") in 1934, but Jebeleanu's principal literary activity in the 1930s was as a journalist closely allied with the left-wing press.
