Mapping Orality and Literacy in Romanian Modern Fiction

Publication: Analele Universității din București. Limba și literatura română, LVII
Publisher:Editura Universității din Bucureşti
Abstract:This essay maps heavily inflected narratives like Sadoveanu’s novels The Hetchet and Tales from Ancuta’s Inn to trace their ability to depart from the human voice and oral rhetoric to achieve a highly literate formulation and a literaly inflected text. The emphasis is on Sadoveanu’s imaginative and expressive rendering of thought that trigger the reader’s surrender to spectacle and the anecdotal, in short the means of manipulating reality and of modifying it from within the movement of folk tales and ballads.
Key words:orality, literacy, visual rhetoric
