ASPECTS OF COLLECTIVE MENTALITY IN BLACK ON WHITE¸ BY C. NEGRUZZI


Posted On Oct 17 2011 by
Age of important historical, political, economic and cultural changes, the middle of the 19th century meant at the same time the birth of a national literature which was to illustrate the modernization process of the Romanian society. The events highly influenced people, leading to the shaping of different attitudes. Such attitudes reflect the collective mentality, the particular way in which people understand to look at themselves, at the others and at the world they live in. C. Negruzzi’s prose (especially the biographic and the memories) observes the passing from the Greek, Balkan and conservative eastern tradition to the French, western modernism. His writings develop, in an unexpected mixture of fiction and memories, the very close relationship between literature and the mechanisms of collective thinking. Proving the relationship between the literary text and social dependence in Black on White is the purpose of this paper.
