The paper is a study of Gustave Flaubert’s reception in Romanian culture based on the principles of modern comparativism that redirects the traditional study of influences towards the investigation of the reception process, following the thread of reception esthetics and making use of Jaussian hermeneutics. The paper is divided into chapters, structured in accordance with the structuralist method and reflecting the theory of the three main levels of reception of a literary work in a different culture: 1) reception in Romanian translations 2) critics’ interpretation reception 3) Flaubert’s influences in Romanian literary landscape. The paper aims at elaborating a pattern of reception of a foreign writer in a national literature as well as at analyzing translation activities while identifying the translator’s alterations and interferences, studying the intermediaries, it also presents the analysis of French values reception, values significant to the adherence of the Romanian spirit to modernity, the comparison to other foreign writers’ reception in Romanian culture, evaluating the Romanian critics’ and comparativists’ contribution to re-reading Flaubert, the analysis of the evaluation and assimilation of both the contact with Flaubert’s art and the Romanian writers’ experience resulting from the impact with his writing and spirit, the actual analysis of several statistical aspects, case studies. The theoretical and methodological bases of this analysis came into being by references to several reception theoreticians, comparativists and interpreters of Flaubert’s work. Romanian historians and critics whose contribution to the literary phenomenon research and to the Flaubert moment are remarkable (W. Iser, H. R. Jauss, U. Eco, R. Escarpit, M. Blanchot, D. H. Pageaux, J. de Gaultier, R. Barthes, J. P. Richards, P. Cornea, A. Marino, M. Martin, E. Simion, D. Grigorescu, H. Zalis, G. Călinescu, T. Vianu, P. Zarifopol, C. Ciopraga, N. Manolescu, I. Mavrodin etc.). The sheer possibility to associate a Romanian writer to Flaubert is by itself a onset starting point for the frame of a fresh, new reading of each of the mentioned creators. The model is applicable to the investigation of reception in various other literary and cultural domains of a national literature or of a writer’s work.
