Marta D. Rădulescu (April 24, 1912 – 1959) was a Romanian poet, journalist, and novelist, made famous in the 1930s for her autofictional work. From an academic family with a penchant for radical politics, she veered into fascist politics, supporting the Iron Guard. The commitment shaped part of her work, which, from a satirical rendition of education in the provinces, becomes a document of interwar radicalization and student political battles. Scandal followed the publication of her early prose works, particularly after claims that they had been largely or entirely written by her father—or, alternatively, by her friend and putative lover N. Crevedia. Her polemic with Crevedia was consumed in the national press and in books written by both participants.

  • Marta D. Rădulescu (April 24, 1912 – 1959) was a Romanian poet, journalist, and novelist, made famous in the 1930s for her autofictional work. From an academic family with a penchant for radical politics, she veered into fascist politics, supporting the Iron Guard. The commitment shaped part of her work, which, from a satirical rendition of education in the provinces, becomes a document of interwar radicalization and student political battles. Scandal followed the publication of her early prose works, particularly after claims that they had been largely or entirely written by her father—or, alternatively, by her friend and putative lover N. Crevedia. Her polemic with Crevedia was consumed in the national press and in books written by both participants. A believer in antisemitic conspiracy theories, Rădulescu put out the Iron Guard magazine Revista Mea between 1935 and 1937. By then, however, her sincerity and political literacy had been put into question by Crevedia. She faded into obscurity by 1940, when she issued her last novel, the first installment of an uncompleted cycle. Her other published works include modern fairy tales and a travelogue of her hiking trips. (en)
