“A Pack of Real Wolves Flew Over The Village.” The Last Book of the Millen- nium. Terror and Wisdom. Uncle Gore – A Peasant of Our Times
The article presents the portrait of a peasant from Gorj, Uncle Gore (Grigore Măciucă), with whom the author of these lines had a long correspondence. Uncle Gore is not so much your typical peasant as much as a type, a character. He is, in his own way, a peasant of our days. His particular portrait, as it appears from his letters, may constitute a picturesque, but also serious, component of the extremely complex and difficult to draw general portrait of the Romanian peasant of today.
