Virgil Tănase - confesiuni din exil
With a sharp mind and an analytical, yet warm insight, Virgil Tănase surprises with his pleasant, elegant, reasonable and honest discourse, distant when necessary. He speaks serenely of the writing experience, yet does not provide with too many details on the metaphorical symbols concealed in his books, leaving us to infer the deep significance of his text. About the exile, he keeps telling over and over again the story of the adolescent got away of his universe, forced to leave his house, garden and town behind to go to university. This break from the regional childhood and the departure to Bucharest will leave a great impression upon him, so that his first novels will reflect it plentifully. For Virgil Tănase, the exiled is that lonely wanderer in a world requiring to jaunt in company, accompanied by military music, while the exile literature is „literature in a zoo, with animals which do not live their natural life”.
