Summary/Abstract: In the present article we want to spotlight the presence of a few letters got by Emil Cioran in his youth from the people who activated in the cultural field or in different publishing houses. The letters are to be found in the archives of Aurel Cioran, the writer’s brother. The time when these letters were written was the one preceding the burst of the First World War. There were letters signed by C.A. Donescu, Petre Comarnescu, Constantin Noica, Pichi Pogăneanu, and Jeni Acterian, the sister of the famous brothers, Arșavir and Haig Acterian. The archives we are talking about were donated by Aurel Cioran, Emil’s brother, to the Astra Library from Sibiu. These letters have both a biographical, historical, literary and a cultural importance, because these documents refer to the oppressive, gloomy and ominous atmosphere before the war. The messages of these letters are connected to the efforts of the intellectuals of those times to maintain peace. In order to be more accurate, we shall offer some information regarding these outstanding intellectuals, friends of Emil Cioran from the time of his youth spent in Romania.
