M. Sadoveanu is one of the most known and loved writers in Romanian literature. His monumental work constitutes itself in an inestimable thesaurus of our culture; through the way he painted society, nature, people, and, most of all, the relationship between nature and people who live in it. The great writer through his own system of lens paints this unique relationship using: mythical symbols, ancient Dacian heritage symbols, proto-Romanian beliefs and symbols, a high level of sensitivity, a profound and unique understanding of people, and his own colossal culture.

The critics’ opinion about his work is unanimously positive today, even if at first, there were some defamatory opinions. What is very unusual to say about this writer is the fact that, even if the traditional critics have written almost everything that could be written about his work, a new approach in his work, by changing critics instruments leads to a fresh image on the works. This was the premise we valued when we began the present study, when our approach on his work was based on symbolist and anthropologic tools. A great attention was paid to the manifestation of high cultural symbols in Romanian culture and Sadoveanu’s specific way of dealing with those symbols in his novels.

The present study could be considered a departure point for further studies, because in our opinion changing the point of view on reading Sadoveanu’s work is always surprising and full of significance.
