Myth of a “creator” and his “creation” by Lucian Blaga and Mircea Eliade
Languages of publication
The study deals with the myth of a “creator” and his “creation” in two dramatic texts by two Romanian authors: Lucian Blaga´s Master Manole and Mircea Eliade ś Endless Pillar. Both authors found inspiration in the folk ballad Master Manole which deals with the myth of the human creation and the necessity of self-sacrifice. The dramas Master Manole and Endless Pillar, each of them in its own way, introduce the creator controlled by his own work desiring to detach itself from him. Thus it becomes for them the destructive power, as well as the way which can lead them to permanence and sacredness. Mircea Eliade studied myths also from the scientific point of view. That is why the introductory part has been devoted to the general issues of myths and their role in the spiritual life of Romanian people. The second part of the study concentrates on the specific features and symbolic character of each individual text and it is an attempt to define their common, unifying elements other than the common topic.
