Summary/Abstract: This paper aims at offering the post-Communist Romanian literature a historical frame starting from Stanislaw Lem’s concept of “search for resistance”. Following the paradigmatic change between Communist and post-Communist literary champ, I briefly discuss the difficult negotiations the Romanian writers had to assume after the fall of Communism in 1989; they suddenly found themselves in the position to confront the disappearance of the censorship institution, which they had learned to live with, or the coming out of fashion of various themes, characters or strategies. It was not only their social life that suffered a sudden change, but their literary art, too.
