La parabole, perspectives linguistiques et culturelles à travers quelques auteurs valaques et moldaves

Abstract : Many authors have stood out, particularly during former times, by displaying specific situations with didactic or moral meanings, through different stylistic processes, such as the parable. The origins and motivations of the parable show the authors’ creativity in various fields and isolate the parable from other linguistics processes. A different context, from one part to another, of the Roman Empire, generated by its fragmentation and by the various influences that shaped the languages and the cultures of those peoples in contact, lead to the loss, in some way, of several sources that were rediscovered after the eastern Roman Empire and that spread through manuscripts and printing. The Romanian field, represented in the former period, by the historical Provinces of Valachia, Moldova and Transylvania, connected with the eastern part of the Romanic area and submitted, more often, to the ottoman authority and to the neighbouring european powers, take part in that movement of expression through the parable marked by this very eastern context. The parable displays once again the intermediation role played by the Romanians, thanks to their geographical situation at the crossroads of eastern and southern cultures. Our objective will consist in studying extracts from masterpieces belonging to some Romanians writers, in order to exemplify some of the characteristics of the parable applied to the Romanian world, together with both its similarities and differences when compared to other European countries, from the former times to present days. It will also allows us to throw into sharp relief the characteristics of the ancient Romanian language, on both sides of the Carpathian Mountains, influenced by slavonic languages, even in its « clothing items», by the Byzantium, and more recently by some other langugages, but still deeply Latin in its structure.
