Story of the object
“Orgolii” is a novel with psychological implications written by Augustin Buzura and first published in 1977 by Dacia Publishing House in Cluj-Napoca.
Label
The publication of the novel “Orgolii” was long overdue, due to the fact that the literary work described a political, social and moral reality that did not suit the communist regime, such as the prison environment and Security abuses, and had to be read and analyzed by several censors. The manuscript was analyzed for more than four years (approximately 1500 days), during which time several objections were made. The author was asked to remove a very long chapter that presented the post-detention period of Professor Cristian.
The novel was screened by director Manole Marcus in a film made after a screenplay written by Augustin Buzura and edited by the director himself. What attracted the filmmaker Manole Marcus was the basic idea of the novel: the daily struggle between people of genuine value and mediocre people and demagogues, as well as the suggestion of irreversible time.
