The Creator vs. the Creative Man in Romanian Literature (The period between the wars vs. the communist regime)

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The myth of creation is a fundamental part of any culture and this is the reason why I consider necessarily and useful to point to the way in which this myth has been artistically expressed in Romanian literature, both in times of successful aesthetic creation and during the regime, which attempted to distort the significance of art. The enrichment of the myth with the idea of the creative man was illustrated in aesthetically valid literary works, whereas the re- and misinterpretation of the status of the creator has strayed away literary art from its essential nature, the myth being thus voided of its meaning. For an academic, such an approach could contribute to clarifying the relationship between art and extra-aesthetic influences. Also the research project could help the students notice the evolution, the involution or the dissolution of Romanian literature during the past century.
