The aim of of the thesis consists in to identify and research the functionality of intertextualisated ethno-folkloric constituets in the structure of prose of Romanian writers from Republic of Moldova in the 1960-1980 years and evaluation the levels of assimilation, sublimation, aesthetic transfiguration of motifs, mythical and folkloric symbols and images of popular creation in artistic works of prose of writers: Ion Constantin Ciobanu, Vasile Vasilache, Vladimir Beşleagă, Druţă Ion Dumitru Matcovschi, Vlad Ioviţă, George Meniuc, Spiridon Vangheli etc.

The scientific novelty and originality of the work lies in analyzing the problem of relations between folklore and prose of Romanian writers from Moldova from folkloristic perspective.

Historical and theoretical investigations of the evolution of the correlation between the traditional oral creation and Romanian written literature led us to appreciate the distinctive level of phenomenon of folklorism from post-war years compared with other literary periods. The originality of the study consists in reviewing and interpreting of folkloric constituents used by writers in their creations, presenting and required references from the folk tradition.

Scientific solved problem consist in historical and theoretical revaluation of modalities of reception, recontextualization, organic assimilation or aesthetic transfiguration of ethno-folkloric components in the prose of Romanian writers of Moldova (1960-1980 years), fact which contributed to the formulation of original ethno-folkloric perspective to interpretation of folkloric-literary interferences having an effect the reconceptualisation of the fundamental notions of folklorism and ethno-folkloric constituents in view of reinterpretation and objective value appreciation of prose of Romanian writers of Moldova for the period indicated.

The practical value of the work lies in examination of the literary context of the post-war years, in which it was harnessed mainly popular creation, making a distinction between the traditional and arising meanings from creative transfiguration of prose of writers, thus extending the possibilities for comparative examination of assimilated ethno-folkloric constituentss, operating analytically between traditional and fictional context.
