THE CORRESPONDENCE OF D. POPOVICI AND ION-HORIA RĂDULESCU
The article retrieves a total of 19 letters from the 1940–1943 correspondence between the literary historians Ion-Horia Rădulescu and Dumitru Popovici. In fact, this is a one-way correspondence: the former, located in Bucharest (and in Paris) is writing to the latter, who took refuge in Sibiu along with the “Ferdinand I” University of Cluj, due to the retrocession of Transylvania to Hungary in 1940. From the point of view of their content, most of the letters refer to the stage of publication of Popoviciʼs papers and to Radulescuʼs research projects, one of the central themes being the editing of a volume in homage to Dumitru Caracostea.
Keywords: intellectual life during the II world war Transylvania, correspondence, Dumitru Popovici (1902–1952), Ion-Horia Rădulescu (1902–1962), Dumitru Caracostea.
