Ion Heliade Rădulescu, Kiseleff and the censorship
Ion Heliade Rădulescu was a great personality of the first part of the 19th century in the place where Romania of today would develop. Some aspects of his activity were less highlighted although almost two centuries have passed since then. Besides being a poet and underlining some merits as a promoter of journalism, Heliade Rădulescu was a powerful publisher (of books, newspapers and reviews) able to fight for imposing them in troubled times of strong opposition to the opening of mass communication. Skilled in organising a newspaper and funding it, the publisher has been continuously fighting the censorship. Each and every victory of his was important in a framework dominated by Romanian and foreigner
decision-makers (e.g. Kiseleff, the Russian general) of Vallachia administration. Those people did not want the journalist activity to be developed. The present research brings important specifications regarding the Heliade Rădulescu’s merits in his heated debates with the Political Power of that period.
