This paper investigates the so-called Transylvania novels within the historic branch of contemporary Hungarian prose poetics, with particular regard to the frameworks evoking, or even constructed upon, historical moments, by a generation of authors who have, in recent years, presented the situation in pre-1989 Transylvania and Romania from the plural bottom-view perspective of children or common people. These authors, especially György Dragomán and Sándor Zsigmond Papp, have first-hand experiences of the historic time and space of their works, so they ground fictitious elements in historic fact, while belonging to a larger group of prose writers. Besides the near past of Transylvania as a background, this aforementioned group also often stages earlier periods of Transylvania as an independent Princedom or part of the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy. Most importantly, however, this paper proposes to survey the compositional processes and motifs based on shared sources and authorial precursors, and the generational presence of analogous modes of evocation and recollection.
