Începusem să mă interesez de unde aş putea lua otravă.
Nu mai puteam pur şi simplu să trăiesc în fiecare zi acelaşi coşmar.
Eu nu pot să accept o astfel de explicaţie, oricât m-aş strădui.
To date, the play has already been staged by ------------------- (1) See Rumanian Situation Report/10, Radio Free Europe Research (EERA), 9 . The explanation for this transposition can most probably be traced to the lack of topical plays on the Rumanian stage in the. The most "daring" play of the season --Paul Everac's Un fluture pe lampa (A Butterfly on the Lamp) --deals with the miseries and humiliations endured by a Rumanian emigre in Prance. Let me be, with my poverty and my little brains.... Look, comrade, let's strike a bargain: I'll tell everybody I'm going to sign up, and than half of the village will follow in my footsteps.
The most profbund conflicts in present-day Rumanian society--if one is to judge by the plays of the current theatrical season --are those between the inhabitants of an apartment house, as presented in Ion Baiesu's comedy Presul (The Doormat). I cannot bear to be ordered about by, just anyone who comes along (Getting up.) I don't think I am going to live long, and I love freedom.. The collective farm must be set up -- I realize this is a commandment of our times.
According to the new clichs, injustice has been committed in the past by people -- Communists --who did not have bad intentions, but who were merely overzealous, used the wrong tactics, people who eventually recanted and regretted these methods. We are born in the sweat and sufferings of our parents and forefathers....
The person who has suffered from injustice is eventually rehabilitated in this best of all possible worlds. ------------------- (3) See Anneli Maier, "Theatrical Meeting in Bucharest," Rumanian Background Re port/1, RFER (EERA), 5 January 1973, and Rumanian SR/7, RPER (EERA), 15 February 1973, Item 7.
De fapt, situaţia chiar se agravează, pe zi ce trece.
Citez din Adevărul:“Prefectul Capitalei, Mihai Atănăsoaei a declarat că Primăria Capitalei este cea care are în atribuţii strângerea maidanezilor însă este de părere că Parchetul şi Poliţia ar trebui să stabilească cine este vinovat pentru moartea femeii.
The new clichs, which in many ways represent nothing more than a repetition on a higher scale of the older, dogmatic formulas have already been given a theoretical [page 3] foundation by Dumitru Popescu, the chairman of the Council on Socialist Culture and Education,  An excerpt from the Titus Popovici play shows how these new clichs operate.
In what may be called a side aspect of the dramatic conflict --the -peasant problem --the author created the figure of the peasant Ion, who was sent to prison and compulsory work, because he refused to pay his "quotas." According to the old schemes of socialist realism, the conflict would be between the poor peasant, who happily joined the collective farm following the (enlightened tutelage of the party activists, and the base, oppositional kulaks who are eventually "liquidated." Such a literature can simply no longer be written at a time when a number of writers (like Dumitru Eadu Popescu and Ion Lancranjan) have already exposed the abuses committed during the forceful collectivization of Rumanian agriculture.
The play -- as well as the film on the same subject preceding it -- is typical of a new kind of pseudoprogressive literature which, without being able to deny the more critical and more truthful representations of Rumanian reality achieved during the 1960s, nevertheless distills optimistic works out of it in which all conflicts are eventually solved and good always triumphs over evil.
