Abstract:

The 1960s and 70s are an interesting period in the literary history of Romania. The present paper is a part of more extensive research on Romanian novels from this period with regard to time, space and opposition strategies therein. The novels disclose secrets about the communist rule of the 1950s fraught with concentration camps, repressions, rigid censorship and ideologisation of culture at all levels. Authors faced the challenge to try and slip in critical remarks about the new ruling class along with criticism of the past. During the period discussed in the paper there was a significant number of literary texts in Romania which were characterized by documentary features and bold socio-political criticism.

Keywords:
