Valeriu Anania’s poetry - a synthesis of philosophical and mythical language
Rev. CONSTANTIN PETREA, Valeriu Anania’s poetry - a synthesis of philosophical and mythical
The present paper analyses the volume “Anamneze”, especially the poems which bare this title, and
it tries to prove that Valeriu Anania’s poetry is neither one belonging to a predictable (monotonous)
religious writer nor a transposition with no artistic value of some symbolic elements
of Christian origin, but a rewriting of a lyrical, philosophical and mythical universe with
countless symbolic interpretations. That is why the study does not exclude the religious aspect from
the poetry of the author, but it considers this component only a starting point of his creation, destined
to reveal the fact that poems are limitations, embodiments of a sensitive artistic universe
which have a meaning belonging not only to Christianity, but to any form of spiritual existence.
The entire lyrical universe rests on the symbol of the word, with its double meaning - divine and
spiritual, which integrates all the other elements creating a mythical world that can be absorbed
through the call to eternity, coming back to the Self, to the primordial elements of existence.
