Summary/Abstract: Exile, for all of its pain and suffering, has offered European writers a way to step out of their national linguistic and environment. Did exiled writers make use of this opportunity, and start writing a “literature for Europe ”? By no means all did; many of them sealed themselves off in order to maintain the purity of their mother tongue, while others ‘opened up’ and adjusted to the culture of their host country, often even by adopting its language for their writing. Tracing the voices of exile from Istanbul (Kelemen Mikes ,Erich Auerbach), Buenos Aires and Madrid (Vintilă Horia), Paris (Adam Mickiewicz, E.M.Cioran, Tristan Tzara and others) the article also dwells upon Pascale Casanova's reasearch "La République mondiale des letters", dealing with the theme of exile.
