The Poet's Life and Work

1886

He continues to work at the library, occupying himself with small jobs: he writes the paylist and the letters that go with it, all sorts of memoranda for the handing back of the borrowed books and for summoning the library board. In summer, his disease recurses. He is transported to a madhouse neighbouring a monastery.

1887

After coming out of the madhouse, we find him in Botosani, looked after by his younger sister. He goes on a journey to Halle for treatment, then he returns to Botosani.

1888

Veronica Micle persuades Eminescu to move to Bucharest. The third edition of his volume of poetry is published at the end of the year.
