In 1969, a relative liberalization allowed mentions of the deceased writer, and his nephew, Gheorghe Gane, Jr (1925–2008), published a brief bio in "Clopotul" of Botoșani. He also kept his uncle's genealogical archive in a Bucharest garage, before emigrating to West Germany; some of these papers were then preserved by genealogist and family friend Ștefan C. Gorovei. "
vieți de doamne și domnițe" was reissued by Editura Junimea in 1971–1973, albeit touched by communist censorship. Such treatment was ended by the Romanian Revolution of 1989, which allowed Gane's work to be revisited. A Constantin Gane Street was consecrated in Botoșani, while, in 2006, "Amărâte și vesele vieți..." went through a reprint at Gheorghe Marin Speteanu publishers of Bucharest. Nevertheless, as Gorovei argues, by 2011 Gane was still "entirely outside the scope of public attention." Humanitas published an unabridged edition of "
vieți..." in 2014. This was followed in 2016 by a reprint of "Amărâte și vesele vieți...", at Editura Corint.
With the 2008 "
vieţi de fanţi şi de birlici" ("Bygone Lives of Beaus and Aces"), he investigated the history of Romanian literature by focusing on and inventorying literary types. In spring, he participated in the project "Scriitori pe calea regală" ("Writers on the Royal Road"), organized by the former King of Romania Michael I, the Royal House, the USR and various other venues for the benefit of award-winning writers. He was also the USR's envoy to the Three Seas Writers and Translators Committee conference on Rhodes, Greece.
Returning to Romania for the rest of World War II, Gane also put out a 1943 sequel to "
vieți...", tiled "Amărâte și vesele vieți de jupânese și cucoane" ("Bittersweet Lives of Dames and Boyaresses"). His final work was a historical novel, "Rădăcini" ("Roots", 1947). Prosecuted by the new communist regime for his involvement with the Guard, he was sentenced in 1949. He died in Aiud prison thirteen years later, after illness and mistreatment, and was buried in an unmarked grave. His death is commonly believed to have occurred in April, but the Gane family records the date as May 13.
Gane's masterpiece remains "
vieți de doamne și domnițe", volume I of which was granted a prize by the Romanian Academy. As noted by critics, the subjects are unusual and captivating, revealed in stories full of color, recounted in a language of archaic vigor. Writer Gheorghe Grigurcu calls it "one of the essential books of my childhood [...], with its rich literary savor pulsating within the arteries of complicated historical reconstructions". According to literary critic Ioan Milică, Gane reused classical storytelling formulas recalling Ion Budai-Deleanu and Ion Creangă in creating portrait-caricatures—for instance, that of the sailor-prince Nicholas Mavrogenes.
In his review of the volume, Emil Mladin deemed it "wonderful" and "an extremely welcome project", noting: ""
vieţi de fanţi şi de birlici" represents a link which the reader needed in his relationship with the characters of stories relevant both at the time of their writing and today." According to literary critic Silvia Dumitrache, the book creates "new paths in interpretation [...] even when starting from literary locations that are often threatened with turning into clichés." She concludes "Through the playful note he impresses on the book, Horia Gârbea proves that his main intention does not reside in the willingness to impose a new hermeneutic grid on Romanian literature, but in the attempt to demonstrate that the resources of literature can never, ever, be entirely exhausted." Cristea-Enache sees in "
vieţi de fanţi şi de birlici" "a book as interesting as it is enjoyable [...]. A holiday read, one could say, had this sytagm not been bastardized, in our country, by so many printed works (volumes and journals alike) that offend the reader's intellect."
Gane was passionate about history, traveling domestically and abroad, rifling through archives and libraries, visiting museums and artistic monuments and researching oral tradition. He published prose (especially of a historical character), articles, notes and reviews, correspondence, travel accounts, plays and novel fragments in "Epoca", "Universul Literar", "Curentul", "Cele Trei Crișuri", "Politica", "Revista Fundațiilor Regale", "Luceafărul" and "Flacăra", and "Convorbiri Literare", serving for a while in 1926 as the latter's editor. He returned in 1927 with the notes of "Întâmplarea cea mare" ("Major Occurrence"), followed by a series of historical novels and tracts: "
vieți de doamne și domnițe" ("Bygone Lives of Queens and Princesses", 3 volumes, 1932–1939); "Farmece" ("Charms", 1933); "Acum o sută de ani" ("One Hundred Years Ago", 2 volumes, 1935); "P. P. Carp și locul său în istoria politică a țării" ("P. P. Carp and His Place in the Country's Political History", 2 volumes, 1936); "Domnița Alexandrina Ghica și contele D'Antraigues" ("Princess Alexandrina Ghica and the Count D'Antraigues", 1937); "Dincolo de zbuciumul veacului" ("Beyond the Fretting of an Era", 1939).
Born in Abrud, he was descended from a long line of Greek-Catholic priests in the Țara Moților region of Transylvania; family members had fought in the 1848 revolution alongside Avram Iancu. After attending high school at Blaj and Sibiu, graduating in 1894, Ciura studied theology and philology at Budapest University from 1894 to 1902. He earned his degree in 1903 with a thesis on Mihai Eminescu and George Coșbuc. He made his published debut with a serial that appeared in the Sibiu newspaper "Tribuna" in 1895. His first book, the 1903 "Visuri
", featured sketches and ephemera. He was the first editor-in-chief of the Budapest-based "Luceafărul" (1902-1903), contributing assiduously until its suppression in 1914. He also wrote for "Lupta" (Budapest), "Cosânzeana", "Familia", "Revista politică și literară", "Pagini literare", "Gând românesc" and "Societatea de mâine". He led the Blaj-based "Unirea" in 1918, transforming it into a national daily and actively using the newspaper to prepare the Alba Iulia assembly that would proclaim the union of Transylvania with Romania. He sometimes used the pen names Al., Alfa, Simin, Petronius and Pribeag.
vieţi de fanţi şi de birlici", Gârbea revisits the main themes of Romanian literature, looking into the biographies of various fictional characters, their lifestyles, personal preferences and social positioning. He himself defined the overview as "a sort of collection of essays on the edge of literary history." One of its chapters compares the tabletop games entertaining such figures, from the contract bridge parties in Camil Petrescu's books and the antiquated card games in Mateiu Caragiale's "Craii de Curtea-Veche" to the cruder craps and gambling preferred by thieves in Eugen Barbu's novels. Other sections discuss the attitudes toward love in such diverse places as Marin Sorescu's neorealist prose and the fantasy short stories of Mircea Eliade. Likewise, the avatars of violence are depicted between Ion Luca Caragiale's satire "D-ale carnavalului", where people threaten to poison each other with sulfuric acid, Anton Bacalbaşa's depictions of officers disciplining their subordinates with the use of belts, and Marin Preda's "Moromeţii", where peasants beat each other with clubs. Another part of the book deals with the incidence of failure among intellectual protagonists, and leads Gârbea to conclude that, with the exception of Mihail Sebastian's "Accidentul", Romanian narratives generally show their intellectual protagonists incapable of finding their way in life. According to Daniel Cristea-Enache, Gârbea generally and willingly limited the scope of his investigation to canonical and urbane literary realism, avoiding allegorical styles such as Onirism: "the author is not interested in symbolic codification, in the refraction of the characters and their fictional world; but, quite the contrary, in the points and lines at which literature intersects with social life."
