ABSTRACT
The present article provides a study of 19th century Romanian writing, that would address changes, diversification and conflicts in women’s private and public roles as part of a slow but steady process of emancipation - the move away from the Victorian cult of domesticity to a new awareness of the opportunities offered to women by the rapid pace of the country’s modernization and economic growth. At the literary level, the study aims to connect the representations of women’s roles with the idiosyncrasies of the transition from romanticism to realism generated by the endurance of the tradition of romance and the persistence of the deeply rooted cult of domesticity.
