Summary/Abstract: The paper Complexes, Dilemmas and Illusions of the Romanian Literature discusses the three concepts – characteristics of the Romanian literature, which function as configurative terms of the critical image. They express, from different points of view and with different intensities a major tension between the critical discourse having as effect the afterimage of the Romanian literature and the Romanian literature itself with her successes, her syncope sang her fluctuations. The debate’s starts pointing are in the anthropological, theoretical and historical-literary of the Eugen Negrici’s book - Iluziile literaturii române (The Illusions of the Romanian Literature), Monica Spiridon’s book - Les dilemmes de l’identité aux confins de l’Europe (The identity’s dilemmas in outer limits of Europe), and Mircea Martin’s book G. Călinescu şi „complexele” literaturii române (G. Călinescu and the Romanian Literature’s ’Complexes’”); the general danger detected is the manipulation of the Romanian Literature by extraesthetic elements.
