 Abstract
The present paper proposes a comparative and contrastive analysis of some thematic coordinates in two Romanian novels, generally assigned to the epistolary paradigm. The two texts belong to Costache Olăreanu (Avionul de hârtie/ The Paper Plane, 1983), respectively to Mihai Zamfir (Se înnoptează. Se lasă ceaţă/ It is getting dark. It is getting foggy, 2006). The main line of argument tries to demonstrate that the epistolary genre is very much in line with the much highlighted recycling postmodernist strategies, supporting an overall movement towards recuperation of a genre absent in the Romanian literature.

 Rezumat
Articolul de faţă îşi propune să compare câteva aspecte tematice relevante din două romane româneşti Avionul de hârtie (Costache Olăreanu, 1983), respectiv Se înnoptează. Se lasă ceaţă (Mihai Zamfir, 2006). Aceste aspecte tematice vizează recontextualizarea şi recuperarea evidentă a genului epistolar, dar şi enunţarea unor raporturi culturale implicite cu tradiţia postmodernă şi epistolară europeană.
