The present text aims to illustrate the varied representations of femininity in the poetry of Ileana Malancioiu. The poems of the sixty-ist writer always revert to two feminine myths – Isolde and the queen Lenore, whose destinies are rewritten in the course of her first collections of poetry, being placed under the sign of Thanatos. Starting with the book titled „Inima reginei” („The Queen’s Heart”) and, afterwards, „Crini pentru domnișoara mireasă” („Lillies for the Unmarried Bride”), Ileana Malancioiu associates representations of femininity with the erotic. Starting from positioning femininity between these two spheres, we will attempt, through this article, to present the manner in which the sixty-ist poet rebuilds the myths of femininity.
