O článku:
Romanian criticism has discussed from various perspectives Mircea Cărtărescu’s belonging to postmodernism from various perspectives. We advance a new idea in the overall exegesis of his work, which is that his prose revisits cultural references from the 17th century (the image of the citadels of Desiderio Monsu), the 18th century (Piranesi’s prisons), the tormented history of the 19th century, the cities of New Orleans, the Mississippi region, or the grotesque visions of El Greco or Biblical images, even the criminology of Gall or Lambroso, by means of spatiality. Thus, the fundamental thesis which we prove by analyzing Cărtărescu’s novel Blinding. The Left Wing, is that interdiscursivity is realized by means of spatial dialogue, which becomes an essential element in sketching out the architectural or artistic discourse according to the literary one. Starting out from the theoretical framework represented by “constitutive intertextuality” and reaching “blended spaces”, the space generated by Mircea Cărtărescu’s prose is configured by interdiscursivity.
