Abstract

This article tackles the experience of exile as described in Norman Manea’s fictional and non-fictional works. My analysis will focus on the relations between language and belonging, as well as on the role of history and memory in the process of identity reconfiguration. The main assumption of this essay is that the shift between reterritorialization and deterritorialization as conditions inflecting the writer’s sense of identity and belonging could provide useful suggestions for a broader investigation concerning the transformations having affected Romanian culture after 1989, while at the same time orienting the discussion towards similar current investigations in a global context.
