Die synästhetische Darstellung der Welt als erotische Reise in Gheorghe Crăciuns "Femei albastre"

  • The novel Femei albastre, published in an unfinished version six years after the death of its author, the Braşov born writer Gheorghe Crăciun, registers a complex symptomatology of losing and finding oneself on the background of the Romanian post-communist transition. The main theme is the narrative depiction of the senses‘ polyphony, the daily drama of the body, whose fundamental loneliness can be observed both in the pain, as in the Eros. The main aim of this article is to present the narrative filtering of various synaesthetic aspects, the written transfiguration of the nformation received through the senses. This is done through a series of experimental techniques, such as photographic reproduction, camera perspective and commuting between the real and the imaginary. Just like one of Crӑciuns earlier novels, Pupa russa, Femei albastre is also not an entirely epic novel, the story is replaced also in this case by a detailed observation and a profound introspection, by a sensory exploration of the world, including its internal transformations and the physical perception. The author himself claims that this novel is to be understood as a conglomerate of eroticism, sensuality and somatic investigation: „Şi acest roman este focalizat asupra erosului, cu nu puţine deschideri spre erotism, senzualitate şi explorare somatică“.
