The Artist’s Hardships of Adjustment to Exile

Publication: Philologica Jassyensia, IX (2), p. 271-278
Publisher:Institutul de Filologie Română „A. Philippide”
Abstract:Once displaced from the birth territory, the artist becomes at first an easy prey to disorientation, uncertainty, lack of spiritual balance and, as a consequence, to nostalgia, desire to return to the land of certainty, where almost everything was where it should’ve been, and where it was easy to find. In such a situation, little things, easy to overlook, at hand or ignored become of an immense importance, revealing overnight an entire universe which until then had been placed in shadow and which becomes the main target of the exile. Nostalgia triggers after that a crisis that manifests itself on many levels of the exiled artist’s structure: time, space, language, culture etc. Each of these components creates a dialectal tension which is hardly or at all solved and with which the individual fights his/her entire life, having the feeling of perpetual pain, associated many times with the torments of Purgatory. Pain which is transferred automatically one way or another to his/her art.
