Summary/Abstract: This paper represents a short excursion through the labirynth of „narrative forest” in order to analiye the mythical values of the Mateiu Caragiale`s novel, even if not so deeply backgrounded. The myth which we have identified may be considered relevant for the substantiality of this novel, in spite of its hidden means, waiting for being revealed by a myth‑analitical interpretation. We do not intend to combat the realistic character of the novel, this has its merits, but we have the opinion that mythical‑substrat can not be ignored.
