Abstract

“Nature is a temple in which living pillars/ Sometimes give voice to confused words;/ Man
passes there through forests of symbols/ Which look at him with understanding eyes”. These are the
thoughts written down by the French poet Charle Baudelaire. At present it can be certainly reaffirmed
that namely the symbol constitutes the key to the spiritual universe insight. In this context, I will remark
the following: same to the great Danube, that has been being sung from the oldest times in folklore
creations, represents a symbol. For Eminescu the Danube symbolizes the force of resistence of the
Romanian nation on the invadors way. While Marin Sorescu, named the Danube “Its Majesty”, as this
river expresses the glory of the nation, as well as the Romanian greatness and dignity. The present
generations are very considerate as well to this river that flows along Europe, since, while referring to
the Danube, we speak of the dialogue, of the indispensable reciprocity as the commercial relations have
been kept on the Danube from ancient times.
