The idea of national unity, the historical persistence of the Romanian nation and its centuryold ideal affirmed their semantic and artistic potential in all Romanian literature. From the 16th century until the present moment the idea of national unity has become a fruitful literary motif, inspiring numerous pieces of artistic, epic and dramatic art. Romanian literature, as studied in its diachronic aspect, provides the reader with a large palette of themes and forms of nationalism, not infrequently abounding in pathos – clearly demonstrated, hidden, or veiled by means of lyrical and epic characters. This paper tries to analyze the representative hypostases of the confluence of art and history in order to demonstrate that quite a few Romanian writers, aware of their national and social duty, used to constantly highlight great national symbols. As far as the domain of art is concerned, possibilities of highlighting the semantic polyvalence of history are truly inexhaustible. Our study is most pertinent, since the possibilities of bringing out semantic polyvalence of history are inexhaustible in the field of Romanian art. The list of names and titles that bring out intellectual and affective aspects of the idea of national unity is a long one. In the present paper we have chosen only several of them, belonging to different periods of Romanian literature, with a view to demonstrating how a literature, aware of its national and social role, sanctifies history, transforms its myths into history and introduces symbols into contemporary art.
