THE HISTORICAL AND SOCIAL REALITY IN THE NOVEL THE MOROMETES (MOROMETII), BY MARIN PREDA PUBLISHEDGheorghe Sechesan
Greater Romania is born in internal and international tension. Although all Romanian provinces were inhabited by a majority of Romanian people ever since the nation was formed, the great foreign powers, and also the neighbouring countries, strongly opposed the constitution of an independent and unitary state of Romania. Despite these tensions and conflicts, the dream of a Greater Romania was going to come true. This was for several reasons: on the one hand, because Romanians had been wanting it for hundreds of years; on the other hand, because it was historically uncommon for regions inhabited by people who speak the same language and share the same traditional culture to belong to different states (Western Europe provides the example of Austria and Germany, but the disintegration of Western states in duchies, principalities and small kingdoms is also a complex issue, that is not, however, of interest for our current discussion).
