The present study is an analysis of the second edition of the monograph dedicated by the late Sibiu-based critic Ilie Guţan tot the Literary Circle from Sibiu. Much ampler than the first one, it contains two unpublished chapters (an extended one analyzing Radu Stanca’s activity as poetry reviewer, plus another one regarding Radu Stanca’s plays), some other chapter published in the Euphorion magazine, as well as in the volume entitled Kaleidscope (2003), completing the study with important contributions regarding Ştefan Aug. Doinaş, Nicolae Balotă and Ion D. Sîrbu, and with a much more explicit contextualization of the group’s ideas and of the critical posterity of the Literary Circle from Sibiu. Compared with the volume from 1995, which gave the impression of a cumulative project gathering texts published in various periods and magazines (as the author himself shows at the end of each chapter), the present edition represents a solid monograph, much more coherent than the previous one, adding some series of elucidations essential to the bibliography of the Literary Circle from Sibiu and its members.
