Summary/Abstract: The article discusses the interdisciplinary literature-psychology relation, particularly the psychology of the creative process. Having studied a number of theoretical sources on the topic, written by psychologists, psychoanalysts, estheticians, we identify that the creative process is a complex phenomenon which involves all psychological mechanisms of the creator and all the resources he acquired through experience. In terms of methodology, we resorted to the aesthetic and psycho-aesthetic perspective approach to the creation process. We aim at elucidating the art-psychological science relation by following the stages of the creation process: the conscious-subconscious, the subjective-objective, individual-general-human relations in the creative personality’s artistic transfiguration of reality. Epic stories and literary-publicistic texts written by Ion Druta and George Meniuc and interpreted from the perspective of the psychology of the creative process and of the way of its artistic transfiguration constitute the research subject of the article. Thus, in the methodology of issue approach, we start from the product (text) to contemplation (receiver) while comprehending the mental processes involved in the mechanisms of the artist’s creative activity. We finally note that the specifics of the creative individuality, alongside with the time in which the author created, leaves its print on the artistic realization of this theoretical-psychological aspect. The given writers display different stylistic orientations in the Romanian literature from Moldova in the period of the 60s-70s of the XX century.
