Summary/Abstract: Mălăncioiu is ‘one of the most interesting and consistent Romanian post-war poets’ (Cristea-Enache), one of the most original and compelling Romanian contemporary poets, ‘one of the greatest’ (Rădulescu). My inquiry into the uniqueness of her achievement focuses on the representation of her spiritual biography, usually cleansed of lyricism, which draws its substance from the rich spiritual resources of the Romanian language and ancient traditions, from the poet’s firm moral consciousness and her tragic existential vision nurtured to a great extent by the terror of history.
