Within the frame of theoretical ideas of World Literature methodology, my paper is aiming to reconsider the relationship between the post-war North-American poetry and the Romanian 80s Generation of poets. Being a complex import, this article sheds light on the conditions and the strategies of this phenomenon through a contextual equation which is more important than a strictly textual one. As a major conclusion of this research, the import of North-American poetry forms, models, ideas, as well as of ideological attitudes is the result of the Romanian young authors’ emulation regarding this faraway literary model. Therefore, this relationship between a centre and a (semi)periphery does not imply a colonizing model of a major culture’s hegemony on a minor one.
