This article tries to reveal the enigma affecting the poem by Stănescu Omul-fantă which, despite being between the ninth and the tenth Elegy, is the only one not to be numbered in the entire volume. This poem, written in honour of Hegel, is considered an “anti-elegy” by the most reliable Romanian critics: here the identity of a mysterious “Man-Slit” (as it has been translated into Italian) is described. He has distant origins and comes from the outside as opposed to the inside of the first elegy. Omul-fănta comes to life (literally: takes being) by coming and comes to life (takes being) allowing himself to be consumed by his existence, until he no longer distinguishes who eats from who is eaten – the subject from the object. From this perspective, Omul-fănta is simply the nothingness which is in direct opposition to the existence of the first Elegy, that is, the nothingness enclosed in the point of the existence (“the inner part of the point, appearing to be smaller than the point itself”). In other words, he is the point in which the One cannot divide himself in two positive parts anymore, but only into one part and the nothingness. According to Lacan, this latter becomes positive as “objet a”. The “objet a” is not complementary to the One, it is its supplement and makes it less than One by destroying him from the inside: therefore, Omul-fantă is a surplus that steals. This nothingness that combines with each entity as its dark double provides the zero level of negativity, and, as such – according to Stănescu – it is inaccessible to Hegel’s system.

Abstract

This article tries to reveal the enigma affecting the poem by Stănescu Omul-fantă which, despite being between the ninth and the tenth Elegy, is the only one not to be numbered in the entire volume. This poem, written in honour of Hegel, is considered an “anti-elegy” by the most reliable Romanian critics: here the identity of a mysterious “Man-Slit” (as it has been translated into Italian) is described. He has distant origins and comes from the outside as opposed to the inside of the first elegy. Omul-fănta comes to life (literally: takes being) by coming and comes to life (takes being) allowing himself to be consumed by his existence, until he no longer distinguishes who eats from who is eaten – the subject from the object. From this perspective, Omul-fănta is simply the nothingness which is in direct opposition to the existence of the first Elegy, that is, the nothingness enclosed in the point of the existence (“the inner part of the point, appearing to be smaller than the point itself”). In other words, he is the point in which the One cannot divide himself in two positive parts anymore, but only into one part and the nothingness. According to Lacan, this latter becomes positive as “objet a”. The “objet a” is not complementary to the One, it is its supplement and makes it less than One by destroying him from the inside: therefore, Omul-fantă is a surplus that steals. This nothingness that combines with each entity as its dark double provides the zero level of negativity, and, as such – according to Stănescu – it is inaccessible to Hegel’s system.
