Representation of Female Character in Literature of Gheorghe Crăciun

Teodora Marcu


The work of Gheorghe Crăciun falls under the category of Romanian postmodernism of the 1980s; this category bears the mark of the socio-political framework in which it appeared. In this paper, I will try to put aside the features of the narrative substance by characterizing his work and I will review the construction of female character which is quite recurrent in his writings. Essentially, his writings are defined as an exploration of the unspeakable, the plurality of objects and language, a narrative investigation of states of mind, feelings, thoughts and dramas that define human existence. My goal is to show the unusual of usual, the freshness of what seems banal, the hypnotic nature of daylight states, the endless metaphysics of gestures and sensations of the smallest.
