IACOBESCU, D. (Armand Iacobson , 1893–1913), Romanian poet. His sensitive verse – in turn musical, agonized, and macabre – appeared in leading reviews. His poems, influenced by French symbolists such as Baudelaire and Verlaine, contain premonitions of Iacobescu's early death from tuberculosis. They and some translations were later collated and published by the critic Perpessicius as Quasi (1930).
