Summary/Abstract: In this study we analyzed the narrative formula from the short prose of the Romanianwriters B. P. Hasdeu, C. Negruzzi, L. Donici, P. Goma, to identify the readiness to look for newdiscursive strategies. After a substantially updated critical reconsideration, we established that theauthors demonstrate in the short prose texts mobility and unexpected vivacity, noting the diversity ofnarrative strategies. In each case it was necessary to move critical inertions, to discover innovations inthe narrative formulation of discourse polymorphism, the dialogic report of variations and the parodicundermining of romantic works (B. P. Hasdeu); recourse to Autoparody, the play with narrative voices,the ambiguity of the reference (C. Negruzzi); the self-fiction essence of the refugee drama, underminingthe communist ideological strategies of the mancurtization of the human being (Leon Donici), forcingto write in another genre, building complicated mental mixtures, prominent tematization of mentalcognitive processes (Paul Goma).
