Summary/Abstract: Although Alexandru Macedonski, „the poet of the night”, belongs to Romania’s Southern literary tradition, he maintained strong ties with Transylvanian journalists especially after he met Ioan Slavici (at Vienna in 1870), who taught him private lessons to enable him to be accepted by a Viennese private school. These circumstances also explain Macedonski’s literary debut in „Telegraful român” from Sibiu and his contributions to „Lumina”, the literary magazine published by Slavici in Arad. Macedonski then joined „Familia” in Oradea, to which he contributed poems for over two decades. His collaboration with „Familia” gives a whole new dimension to his writing, which the present article seeks to emphasize.
