Mihai-Octavian Groza, Lucian Blaga: memorialist of World War I and of the events preceding the Great Union
For many, The Chronicle and the song of the ages studied during middle and high school, remains, after graduation, just a literary work in the compulsory school bibliographies. Read from a historical perspective, this work becomes a genuine source for capturing different experiences, ideas and socio-political views. In the context of the commemoration of the centenary of the World War I, we propose in this study the reintroduction of this work in the historical debate, through capturing the experience of the young Lucian Blaga and some members of his family during the war years and the Great Union, as well and the way these events affected them.
Keywords: Lucian Blaga, World War I, the Great Union, memoirs, cultural history.
