Summary/Abstract: Mimi Khalvati, born in Teheran, trained in Switzerland and London, where she also settled, is a living cultural proof that the Legend of Manole the Craftsman is circumscribed not only to the Romanian cultural background but also to a multicultural one. The similitude that exists between Mimi Khalvati’s poetry and the Legend of Manole the Craftsman derives from the idea of walling in the living heart and the soul in order to build up the genuine literature based on self-sacrifice, empathy and the transcending of the real by aspiring at the ideal. For our paper to acquire a critical support, Kelly's personal construct theory, Bachelard's poetics and sound symbolism have also closely been turned to good account.
