Convorbiri Literare (meaning Literary Talk in English) is a Romanian literary magazine published in Romania. The magazine is among the most important journals of the nineteenth-century Romania.[1]

History and profile

Convorbiri Literare was founded by Titu Maiorescu in 1867.[2][3][4] The magazine was the organ of the Junimea group, a literary society which was established in 1864.[4][5] The group included aristocratic Moldavians except for Titu Maiorescu.[4] The magazine was first headquartered in Iaşi.[5] It was later moved to Bucharest.[5]

Convorbiri Literare is published monthly[4] by Convorbiri Literare publishing house.[6] The magazine covered art reviews[7] and translations of literary work.[3] From 1906 the magazine also featured articles on plastic arts.[7] The contributors included Alexandru Tzigara-Samurcaș and Apcar Baltazar among others.[7] The other significant contributors were Mihai Eminescu, Ion Creangă and Ion Luca Caragiale.[8]

Convorbiri Literare has a conservative stance[5] and its literary rival was socialist Contemporanul during the communist regime in Romania.[4]
