Summary/Abstract: This study follows under ideational aspect the article entitled Myth and Tragedy, fatality and failure in the destiny of the realistic character – Ion by Liviu Rebreanu, published in the previous number of the Journal of Humanistic and Social Studies. Just like a lighthouse which sequentially beacons the landscape of an island, in the first article “I beaconed” gradually each critical perspective, starting with the traditionalist view, continuing with the psychological interpretation to put the character in the light of a mythical analysis in terms of specific mentalities on Romanian archaic space. In this study, we aimed both how female characters triangulates the hero’s eroticism and enhances the dynamics of his fate fatality and the tragic destiny dimension of a unique female character in Romanian literature, Ana Baciu. Not only Ana is surprised by her spiritual unfulfillment, but also Florica, along with other female characters in the novel, who know love, but not fulfillment. The erotic female triangle, Ana – The Great Goddess – Florica is potentiated by the female isomorphism of the earth, which, with the image of a mother, lover, virgin, attracts, “calls” and “embraces” fatally all the characters of the novel.
