Literatura isanosciană sub semnul războiului
Magda Isanos was born on April 17, 1916, in Iasi, shortly before Romania entered the First World War, while Europe is strongly ruled by warriors. In the autumn of the same year, the capital of Romania is taken over by Falkenheim, and the emigration to Iasi is profound , drawing a terrible painting, occupied by thousands of refugees, Romanians and other origins. The writer’s family retires to Costiujeni, a village near Chisinau and Magda Isanos follows her studies in Bessarabia, later becoming an emblematic literary figure. The war takes away her first creations, which remain in the house from Costiujeni, in 1940, when the author’s family flees from Bessarabia. Other manuscripts are lost due to the explosion of a bomb in the yard. In other words, the war misappropriates a few “puzzle pieces” that build the portrait of Magda Isanos. The echo of the war resounds in isanosian literature, especially because of the themes the young writer approaches: death, the struggle for life, time, the journey under the guise of the refuge, the love that is too little fulfilled, because her husband, Eusebiu Camilar, is on the front. With an incredible creative power and loaded with infinite optimism, Magda Isanos gladly receives everything that is happening to her. For example, in the refuge in Arges, in 1944, when she is carried on arms, because of her illness, she smiles to relieve the sadness of those who see her in distress. However, her notations about the war are made from an objective perspective, talking about poverty that dominates villages, about dead soldiers, about the effects of the war, being accused of communism, because of the illustration of the truth.
