Ionel Teodoreanu

Ionel Teodoreanu was a Romanian novelist and lawyer. He is remembered for his books on the themes of childhood and adolescence. Born in January 1897 in Iaşi into a family of intellectuals, Teodoreanu followed his father Osvald and older brother Păstorel in becoming a lawyer. From 1904 to 1906 he attended the German primary school of Pitar-Moş in Bucharest, until his parents moved back to Iaşi. Between 1908 and 1912 he attended the Boarding High School in Iaşi, he transferred to the National College, which he attended until he graduated in 1916. Teodoreanu obtained his Law degree in 1919, began to work as a lawyer, although he was more attracted to literature. In late 1918, Teodoreanu he was introduced to his future wife, Maria Ştefana Lupaşcu, by Delavrancea's daughters; the two young people became close due to their mutual passion for literature and their disposition towards writing, they married in 1920. One year on February 3, 1921, he became the father of twin boys, Ştefan and Osvald. Ionel Teodoreanu died on February 1954, at 57 in Bucharest.

Teodoreanu made his literary debut in 1919, with the Bunicii sketch, published in the review Însemnări literare. His editorial debut was represented by the short story volume Uliţa copilăriei. Like his brother Păstorel—a renowned epigrammatist—he was linked to the Romanian Life group led by Garabet Ibrăileanu, who considered him to one of the most promising writers of the generation following World War I. In this environment, Teodoreanu published his classic novel trilogy. La Medeleni between 1925 and 1927. Teodoreanu wrote around twenty books, but his greatest success with children and young people, was La Medeleni; the trilogy includes several autobiographical episodes, and, on a universal level, constitute a subtle analysis of the human soul. The trilogy is not without its critics; the universe of La Medeleni reflects the upper middle class environment in Romania during the early decades of the 20th century. It depicts the innocence of childhood which the ravages of the World War and its aftermath would soon shatter.

Although Teodoreanu did not write it as an autobiography, his experience of having grown up in such a family in Moldavia during this time was influential. Teodoreanu abandoned the childhood theme in most of his literary works and never again reached the same level of success, but his books are still loved. In Lorelei, the main character is Luli, an eighteen-year-old student who falls in love with her teacher, Catul Bogdan, becoming engaged to him just three days after their first meeting. Bogdan is a workaholic writer, soon Luli starts to feel abandoned and unloved. With the help of her friend, Luli sets to play a game with her husband, she writes some poems, makes her friend Gabriela write them down, signing them with the psedudonym "Lorelei" and mail them to her husband. Catul is amazed by the quality of the poems and falls in love with the woman who wrote them. After a while, when Gabriela visits them, he sees a piece of paper with her writing and believes she is the mysterious "Lorelei". Luli realizes what is going on, but before this situation could be defused, dies due to an acute appendicitis.

Catul marries Gabriela, but their relationship is marred by the character faults of Gabriela. He loses his ability to write, he realizes that Gabriela is only after his money, learns the true identity of "Lorelei", commits suicide.

Ayon Island

Ayon Island is an island in the coast of Chukotka in the East Siberian Sea. The island itself consists of low-lying tundra, is populated by the Chukchi people, who use the tundra as pasture for their reindeer herds, it is located on the western side of the Chaunskaya Bay, directly off the Nutel'gyrgym Peninsula, at the eastern end of the Kolyma Gulf. The island is 38 km wide, it is low and flat and there are many small lakes and swamps. Ayon Island is separated from the mainland by the Malyy Chaunskiy Strait, a shallow channel, 2 km wide in its narrowest spot; the bay to the south and east is Chaunskaya Guba. Administratively and municipally, Ayon Island belongs to Chaunsky District, part of Chukotka Autonomous Okrug of the Russian Federation. There are two small settlements and Ayon in the northwestern end of the island; the name of the island is thought to come from one of two sources. Firstly, it is suggested that it comes from the Chukchi word "Ayo", meaning "brain", as the islands shape is somewhat like a brain.

The second school of though is that it is derived from Chukchi meaning "coming alive", in reference to the fact that although the island is covered in ice and snow during the winter, in the summer, this melts and the island provides a good pasture for reindeer herds as well as being the home to swarms of midges and gadflies. Following the rise of communism in the Soviet Union in the first part of the twentieth century, the native herds were collectivised in 1933 into a group called "Enmitagino"; such collectivisation was successful on the island and in 1950, the collective in Ayon was turned into a formal Kolkhoz that would have around 22,000 reindeer under its control. In addition to reindeer herding, the new collective was engaged in sea-hunting and the collection of furs. A polar station was established on the site of the village in 1941 and the icebreaker Krasin brought Pyotr Sidersky and a crew of seven people to man the new station; this was the first time that the village site had been inhabited permanently, with indigenous people living there only during the summer when the reindeer were taken to pasture, with the exception of a few individuals who would over-winter in order to hunt.

By 1944, the settlement had become permanent and there were 103 people living in 23 houses. However, following the collapse of the Soviet Union, state support was withdrawn and the herders, used to being supplied with the latest technology by the state now found that not only did they have to fend for themselves with regards to the day to day herding, but that there was no guarantee that they would receive the money they were owed for the meat they provided to the state; the result of this is that the herds have shrunk from 22,000 to only around 4,000. The result of this is; this has led to a lot of drinking, which not only has sociological effects, but the litter produced encourages disease from which the reindeer now suffer, further reducing the size of the herd. Ryyanranot Island 69.992°N 168.608°E / 69.992. It is separated from it by a 1.2 km wide sound. Chengkuul Island 69.930°N 169.226°E / 69.930. It is located off the northeastern coast of Ayon Island, separated from it by a 5 km wide sound.
