Summary/Abstract: Bacovia’s cardinal position in the Romanian literary canon is undisputable. He is the inventor of modernism for Romanian poetry, yet he is mostly followed nowadays by postmodernist poets who recognize him as their ancestor. The poet’s late time refers both to his life after 1945 and to his poetic universe, it is a bleak vision of his former inabilities which render him now disconnected from the social life and relationships. The poet so recoiled in his inner universe can find no way out or better said outwards. In the poetry of Bacovia we breathe the saddest beautiful story of a poet made extinct by the mirror of solitude. The late time was his favorite syntagma, transposed into an attempt to never be in line with his time.
