The experience and the history transcript
This study aims at identifying the manners of representing history in a space which is protected by the diffuse boundaries of fiction and auto-enunciation, in Mircea Pora’s short prose. The Ethical Authenticity of the author’s transcription of history as it unfolds, testifies to the lucidity, scepticism and critical conscience of the individual who, for years on end, has questioned and has situated himself obliquely, incongruently in relation to the truth of the official discourse proclaimed by the institutions and authorities in charge with the shaping of an image of the national history. Literature as an act of collective memory also becomes, in this case, a personal lesson of survival.
Keywords: ethics of re-writing history, individual memory, history, the poetic of irony, fictional and autobiographical
