Ruralism and Literature in Romania de Ștefan Baghiu, Vlad Pojoga și Maria Sass
Volum editat de Ștefan Baghiu, Vlad Pojoga și Maria Sass
Ruralism and Literature in Romania proposes a series of academic studies of rural literature and cultural portrayals of peasantry. The topics range from re-readings of canonical works to ideological readings of modern Romanian literature, rural novels of the Romanian socialist realism and post-communist literary trends centred around rural life. The three sections of the volume, “The Novel,” “Literary Criticism and Social Action,” and “Poetry” focus on the intervention of the nineteenth and twentieth-century cultural elites in the discussions of peasantry, on the role of ideology in portraying the peasant during the interwar period and postwar literature, and on off-centre topics such as zoopoetics and artificial intelligence in the rural literature.
