Henriette Yvonne Stahl crossed almost whole 20th century, with all his historical events, wrote nine novels, two volumes of short novels, a volume of poems and performed the translation of ten masterpieces from eight writers.

The men from her life, Ion Vinea and Petru Dumitriu, had in her an incentive of their talent and a formidable critic. The disease was the background of her existence, but this did not spare her from the communist prison experience. Without being enroll in some literary circle or some fancy literary orientation, without writing memories or being diarist, she spread her ego and her experiences throughout his entire opera, and she kept her aristocratic halo and her principles till the end of her life.
