The Romanian Writer: from Socio-Cultural Need to "Democratic" Disinterest (2013-2014)


The specific aim of this article is to make as clear as possible the structural, socio-cultural differences between the Romanian literature before 1990 and after, integrating examples (Romanian writers) that are not only representing “artistic” exceptions, but also general cultural rules. That is why important and representative Romanian writers such as Marin Preda or Nichita Stănescu, Norman Manea or Mircea Cărtărescu, Radu Aldulescu or Dan Lungu have been selected. The interest is in examining (and making visible) the contexts in which our writers manifested and constructed themselves. I am referring to social and ideological contexts, material determinations and implications, not “ideal” and idealistic ones.

Keywords: Romanian literature, sec.XIX-XX, social context, ideological context
