HOW STYLE MAKES SPACE. REFLECTIONS ON THE FORMS OF LIFE IN THE LITERATURE OF VIAȚA ROMÂNEASCĂ CIRCLE
The purpose of this paper is to rethink the spatial representations of periphery from the perspective of the theories of style. Space is redefined, according to Bertrand Westphal, as a task of representation, which transcends the notion of territoriality that classifies space into types and hierarchies and becomes a fluid transgressive order at the frontier between reality and imagination. These spatial dynamics questions the manner of practicing the marginality, the mode of relating and interacting with the space. Therefore, the marginality becomes a counter-identity that distinguishes itself from the Centre (Mihail Sadoveanu), a creative practice that replaces an inefficient local identity (Ionel Teodoreanu), or a space that detours the dominant discourses through the politics of usage.
Keywords: style, marginality, transgressivity, spatial practice, Viața românească.
