Rezumat:Sextil Pușcariu’s biographical meanders mark out the destiny of an intellectual ready to get involved in and committed to the transformation undergone by a nation. His Memoirs of 1914-1918 and 1918–1930, edited in a bulky volume in 1978, having undergone heavy censorship, with Minerva Publishing House, under the supervision of Magdalena Vulpe as editor, live on as Pușcariu’s masterpiece in terms of confessional literature. The man of culture conveys experiencing history first hand overtly feverishly and is fortunate enough to be involved in the gleeful events of the Great Union in Cernăuți, in Bukovina, immediately after the Great Union. His memoirs have the stages of his becoming and maturity as underpinnings: his formative years in Brașov, his years in Cernăuți with his participation in achieving the Great Union, his foundational and fruitful maturity in Cluj, after 1919. Indeed Brașov, Cernăuți and Cluj make up the vital, defining triangle of Sextil Pușcariu’s biography.
An appealling structural ingenuity in the organization of confession makes Pușcariu’s work a composition-informed work. The author writes in a manner whereby daily entries, typical of the diary genre, should meet the retrospective reflection of memory and the letters to his wife that were retrieved. His memoirs-informed diary is permanently completed by epistolary memoirs, by a pleasant merging of confessional discourses, a junction among diary, memoirs and family correspondence.
Sextil Pușcariu’s memoirs harmoniously merge in their evoking of intimate and public life, all this within the bounds of an utterly urbane style. Throughout this succesion of events from 1914 to 1930, that he renders in his memoirs, at times in cold diligence, at other times in all enthusiasm, Sextil Pușcariu feels that he is the protagonist, the leading man of the great national history, the founding history of a European destiny. Involved, by his own will, in the great historical events as regards the preparation and the achievement of The Great Union, Sextil Pușcariu had to stay at the forefront of political life, not as much as protagonist, but rather as a representative of great institutions (for instance, as the first Rector of Cluj University). Subsequently, he was a delegate with the Intellectual Cooperation Commission in Geneva, with the League of Nations, where he had to perform high European level politics between 1922 and 1925, after having performed effective national politics in terms of documents and feats of the year 1918, the apex of his life, as he himself would admit later. After having completed his one-year term as the Rector of Cluj University, between 1919–1920, Sextil Pușcariu spends expansive time in Bucharest in work meetings of the Romanian Academy. In his Memoirs he minutely renders the official meetings and the off-the-record talks that he takes part in between 1921 and 1927.
The political vision of a European enthusiast and a man having expertise in European issues, which draws on the experience of intellectual cooperation in the League of Nations period, all this can be readily noticed in the Geneva entries of 1922–1925. A thorough connaisseur of German and French cultures, not merely of the two languages per se, a thoughtful traveller throughout Europe, lingering through studies undertaken in his youth in several grand capital-cities, an intinerary traveller through most of Romania’s regions and cities, with the occasion of conferences held within the programme of university extension, Sextil Pușcariu is a sagacious observer of mentalities, a philologist yielding an all-encompassing cultural and political vision.
