Item description for Censorship in Romania by Lidia Vianu...
Through a series of interviews with prominent Romanian literary figures and a select presentation of their writings. Lidia Vianu asks how, under communism, did Romanian writers cope with constant ideological shifts and, in turn, respond to the censorship that so often accompanied such changes? Vianu has chosen a series of subversive writings that not only indicted communism but were also widely embraced by the Romanian public. The author continues to argue that after the fall of communism and the disappearance of subversive literature, the Romanian public started to devour works of translation. A somewhat different form of censorship arose from the old: state-sponsored censorship was replaced by what Vianu calls a crisis of native writing. Students of literature, human rights, and history, where the personal is political, will find inspiration and courage in these writings and interviews.
