Abstract:Even though all the readers can depict great differences between the books of the two Romanian writers, I.D. Sîrbu and C.S. Nicolăescu-Plopşor, they can discover also one common feature at least – a specific way of fructifying the folkloric legends in their works.
Both I.D. Sîrbu, in the novel De ce plânge mama?, and C.S. Nicolăescu-Plopşor, in his volume entitled Poveşti Olteneşti as well, utilized a rich series of myths and legends, managing to confer a kind of fairy tales atmosphere to their narrations.
In the above mentioned novel De ce plânge mama?, I.D. Sîrbu used two folkloric legends and creates two distinct chapters – Povestea iezerului and Povestea Sălanelor.
In Plopsor’s volume a bundle of legends about different geographic places – Băile Herculane, the Retezat mountains, the Cerna river or the lake Bucura – formed a fairy tale, called “Iogovan”, as it was considered by many critics.
This paper shows that almost any name of a geographic place has in parallel a legend that explains the genesis of that relief, being – in fact – a kind of popular explanation of the topic name.
Key words:folkloric legend, geographic place, topic name
Language: Romanian
