 Abstract
One of the biggest challenges any nation is faced with is shaping a strong and coherent identity discourse and the United States of America, in spite of the position assumed during the last centuries, has been the most challenged from this point of view. Thus, the present article aims at analysing the instruments that form and generate the American identity discourse (mainly liberty and surveillance) by analysing the work of one of the most debated and disputed American contemporary novelists, Paul Auster.

 Rezumat
Una dintre cele mai mari provocǎri cu care orice naţiune se confruntǎ este aceea de a-şi defini discursul identitar, iar Statele Unite ale Americii, în ciuda poziţiei asumate de lider pe care a abordat-o de câteva secole au fost cele care s-au confruntat cel mai mult cu un asemenea imperativ. Astfel, articolul urmǎreşte sǎ exploreze instrumentele utilizate pentru conturarea discursului identitar (libertatea şi supravegherea) prin analizarea romanului « Leviathan » al lui Paul Auster.
