Summary/Abstract: Lucian Blaga, one of the most remarkable milestones for both Romanian Culture and Literature, was highly appreciated not only for his massive research, but also unique poetic and philosophical works. This study aims to point out to what extent Blaga’sstylistics’ concept, “the revealing metaphor”, applies into his poetry. At the Courtyard Yearning is a representative poem for illustrating a key metaphor in Blaga’s poetic philosophical works: the longing metaphor. This metaphor becomes a revealing one when longing feeling extends its meanings to the entire universe, as the poem will demonstrate.
