Matthew's enigma : a father's portrait of his autistic son by Matei Călinescu( )

3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 1,366 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Reminiscences about Matthew's life are interwoven with observations of his behavior and reflections on the difficulties that autistic persons encounter in social situations. Drawing from journals that he kept, beginning with Matthew's birth, as well as from his experience as a scholar of literature and philosophy and a reader of psychologists' and brain scientists' writings about autism, Calinescu has composed an inspiring and lyrical essay about love and illness, memory and forgetfulness, sociability and alienation."--Jacket
Exploring Postmodernism : selected papers presented at a Workshop on Postmodernism at the 11.th International comparative literature congress, Paris, 20-24 August 1985 by Matei Călinescu( )

8 editions published between 1987 and 1990 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The great diversity of contexts in which the term Postmodernism is currently encountered reflects the remarkable success of a coinage that has been in circulation for only about forty years. It has been used by philosophers, sociologists, art critics and literary historians to become, finally, a household word in the language of advertising and politics. Before letting it fade to a derelict cliché, an attempt is made in this volume of essays to use its potential as a cultural concept for the analysis and understanding of contemporary literature and thought
Five faces of modernity : modernism, avant-garde, decadence, kitsch, postmodernism by Matei Călinescu( Book )

55 editions published between 1977 and 2006 in English and Italian and held by 939 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Five Faces of Modernity is a series of semantic and cultural biographies of words that have taken on special significance in the last century and a half or so: modernity, avant-garde, decadence, kitsch, and postmodernism. The concept of modernity--the notion that we, the living, are different and somehow superior to our predecessors and that our civilization is likely to be succeeded by one even superior to ours--is a relatively recent Western invention and one whose time may already have passed, if we believe its postmodern challengers. Calinescu documents the rise of cultural modernity and, in tracing the shifting senses of the five terms under scrutiny, illustrates the intricate value judgments, conflicting orientations, and intellectual paradoxes to which it has given rise
The Romanians : a history by Vlad Georgescu( Book )

Rumæniens historie indtil vore dage
Youth without youth and other novellas by Mircea Eliade( Book )

7 editions published between 1988 and 1989 in English and held by 535 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Three novellas set in Romania. In "The Cape," a saboteur prints phony copies of the Romanian party organ, Scinteia, antedating them by three years. The secret police, highly agitated, deduce that a worldwide peace organization is sending coded messages through the paper, derived from the beatitudes. In "Youth Without Youth," an old man is struck by a bolt of lightning and becomes young again. Now endowed with a fantastic memory and comprehension, he receives "thought" messages from the supernatural. "Nineteen Roses" concerns the secretary of a famous writer who finds himself reliving an experience that happened to his employer 30 years ago. The writer disappears and is presumed dead, but is he?

Rereading by Matei Călinescu( Book )

15 editions published between 1993 and 2003 in English and Romanian and held by 448 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

He discusses the problems raised by secret or oblique languages and codes - devised to evade censors, communicate with a select audience of "secret sharers," or play games of hide-and-seek with the reader - and shows that they naturally lead to rereading a text. Calinescu argues persuasively that an understanding of rereading is useful in formulating both analytic strategies of practical criticism and a poetics of reading
The life and opinions of Zacharias Lichter by Matei Călinescu( Book )

38 editions published between 1969 and 2018 in 5 languages and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ugly, unkempt, a haunter of low dives who begs for a living and lives on the street, Zacharias Lichter exists for all that in a state of unlikely rapture. After being engulfed by a divine flame as a teenager, Zacharias has devoted his days to doing nothing at all--apart, that is, from composing the odd poem he immediately throws away and consorting with a handful of stray friends: Poldy, for example, the catatonic alcoholic whom Zacharias considers a brilliant philosopher, or another more vigorous barfly whose prolific output of pornographic verses has won him the nickname of the Poet. Zacharias is a kind of holy fool, but one whose foolery calls in question both social convention and conventional wisdom. He is as much skeptic as ecstatic, affirming above all the truth of perplexity. This of course is what makes him a permanent outrage to the powers that be, be they reactionary or revolutionary, and to all other self-appointed champions of morality who are blind to their own absurdity. The only thing that scares Zacharias is that all-purpose servant of conformity, the psychiatrist"--Amazon.com
