I.L: Caragiale In Alternative Readings. The Comic For Export And Caragiale’s World In Cinematographic Interpretation – From The Communist Propaganda To The New Romanian Wave
The following paper aims to recontextualise the works of Ion Luca Caragiale by means of applying the contemporary methodologies of World Literature studies in order to inscribe the author in an international literary circuit. At the same time, the study will also try to investigate I.L. Caragiale as a transnational author, for his catalytic influence on the New Wave of Romanian cinema, by far the most exportable autochthonous cultural product. For this, the paper proposes to discuss Caragiale as an author not in the classical terms of canonicity and Romanian literary classicism, but as a continuous influence for a rather „alternative canon” that can be identified in Romanian cinematography.
Keywords: Caragiale, Romanian cinematography, New Wave, transnationalism, cultural export.
