Horia Vintilă fictionalizes in his novel, Dieu est né en exil, Ovid’s diary, a Latin writer of the 1st century who, exiled from Rome, finds his freedom in Tomes, a town which is now in the Rumanian territory and it is named Constanţa. The empiric author, exiled himself too, imagines the last eight years of Ovid’s life that represented a time of waiting, remaking his faith, renouncing of the gods in favor of God, and even more, a time of finding himself. With his novel, Horia Vintilă was both included in and excluded from the French society, continuing thus the condition of the exiled writer.
