Nicolae Petrescu-Redi is from Ploiesti and of course, contaminated by the spirit of Caragiale. But he also adds to his grounded-ironic availability a lyric sensitivity expressed in memorable quotes. Miniatures and sayings gather, therefore, in condensed expressions, existential reflections. He is characterized by classic discipline, means of clear, suggestive struggle, through metaphoric excellence. The formula used by Nicolae Petrescu-Redi speaks about a unique creative personality. /Acad. Mihai Cimpoi/ The aphorisms of N. Petrescu-Redi indicate the art of public representative, stated by words meanings, semantic intersections and interferences, the homonym, synonym and antonym game. the author’s performance is guided by a poet talent: with N. Petrescu-Redi, the word rises against itself and gets a whole other meaning. This is the true essence of poetry. /Constant Calinescu/ N. Petrescu-Redi brought to attention the aphorism, which captures a truth through a maximum precision, a paradox, an experience, told with humor or emotion. His aphorisms are somewhere between the wisdom of the proverb and the transfiguration of the poem in a single verse /Victoria Milescu/ In the confrontation with the poetic valences, the heavy, halberd armor, the pike, the headpiece, the shield are not quite for Nicolae Petrescu-Redi. He is the master of himself and of the situation when he masters the light rapier of aphoristic concision (if they did not refer to the sad events in the history of humanity, I might as well call his creations “Blitz-Gedichte!”) /Valeriu Stancu/ The aphorisms of Nicolae Petrescu-Redi is ironic and paradox, with many references to figures and events in history and mythology. /Fabrizio Caramagna/ What is remarkable in the aphorisms of N. Petrescu-Redi is his vocation to speculate on the event, putting it in unusual relations and discovering unexpected meanings. He is not shy in judging, selecting and valuing, focusing on vices and incriminate them, but also baldly eulogizing the human values. His preferences always meet towards a basic constellation. Let’s also add that, besides a good assimilation of the genre’s hardness (clarity and concision), N. Petrescu-Redi masters the art of exploiting the paradox situation, therefore the shade game would raise the most disturbing of his aphorisms. The tone ranges between the plastic apothegm, the viral sarcasm, the counseling tone, the acid irony, the bitter statement or just in jest, the important melancholy, the elegy sadness, the warm affection… There is an authentic poet of the human gravity in N. Petrescu-Redi. /Constantin Sorescu/ Nicolae Petrescu-Redi cultivates the aphorism-poem and the poem-aphorism. The author knows how to take down the barriers between the two genres and to mix them up. The aphoristic style of poems as the poetic style of aphorism characterizes his writing. He situates his aphorism-poem and poem-aphorism somewhere between laughter and crying, between summer and winter (like seasons of the spirit), between serious indulgence and kind austerity. /Nicolae Dabija/ With a caustic verb, with resentful bitterness, only infused by melancholy, the writer watches the spectacle of human emptiness both resigned and as a warrior. He has the instinct and the feast of the significant formula, rarely lacking a lyric vibration of the foggy tremor of a dissimulated tear. /Nicolae Boaru/ It is clear, Mr. Redi is part of the spirit family who played the naughty game of life with words. The blazing and solemn, melancholic and minstrel authors are present in places you would not think about. Sure, he is a moralist, distilling the image and word, but he also is a poet building his own poetic art, melancholic and tolerant. /Ioan Topolog Popescu/ A true moralist, N. Petrescu-Redi has the sense of irony, but also of poetry, many of his sayings gathering real metaphors. /Nic. Dumitrescu/
