Summary/Abstract: The present paper will present a series of similarities that exist between Mihai Eminescu’s creation and the one of Friedrich Nietzsche, across the three fundamental components: • personal life: we can observe an obvious physical resemblance as well as identical personal experiences, such as love (Eminescu – Veronica Micle, Nietzsche – Lou Salomé);• literary creation: we can fiind common themes such as woman in poetry or Zarathustra/Zoroastru in prose, but also similar visions regarding the nascency of the overman (Dionysiac for Nietzsche in Aşa grăit-a Zarathustra, Christian for Eminescu in Sărmanul Dionis) or romantic themes like the star; • philosophic creation: where we found common ethical matters such as good and evil, existentialist matters such as life and death, but also the myth of eternal return, and cognitive matters such as reasoning – thinking relation.
