Piesele lui Caragiale m-au fascinat din totdeauna. Morala ascunsa dupa umorul fin nu are cum sa nu-ti puna un zambet pe buze.
Carmen
An excellent portrayal of political life, which, I am sad to admit , is valid even nowadays in Romania. Even more than when Caragiale wrote the play!

Nu a fost atat de rau pe cat am crezut eu ca o sa fie. Chiar mi-a placut.

O Scrisoare Pierduta by I. L. Caragiale
Caragiale can be regarded as a good source for advice on Positive Psychology. Since I have read some 20 books on Positive Psychology and another 25 of the “Psychology Classics”, my perspective and reading of books that had a different place in my mind has changed.
• Caragiale has a satirical look on the failings of society.
• The key is humor- if we look around and find the comical we will be better off
• Instead of moaning about what another did, we can have

O scrisoare pierdutăby Ion Luca Caragiale is a play that has its moments.It's sometimes really good and sometimes you are just dissapointed.In the end,I.L. Caragiale made a good play,but that's about it.Compared to one very good play I've read( A Midsummer Night's Dream )the plot and characters that Caragiale created are not very memorable and never do something really special.And speaking of special,Caragiale is famous for quite the contrary.He is famous for the accuracy he has when describing ...more

Niciodata nu m-am saturat sa vad dramatizarea dupa O scrisoare pierduta. Asa cum Eminescu se confunda deja cu spiritul romanesc, si Caragiale a intrat in firesc atat de mult incat unii nici nu il mai recunosc. Umorul acestei geniale piese nu cred ca se va demoda niciodata, iar ironia sortii face ca personajele lui sa fie uluitor de perene in politica romaneasca.
Dana Păduraru
i didn't mind the subject and stuff but the author is really great at writing this kind of texts.
Gabrielle Dg
Comedie pură. :)
Mina Soare
I had to read it for school. I disliked it for the sole reason that it was written by a romanian in the same style that romanian authors have in common, which, simply put, sits ill with me.
Ana Rînceanu
Politicienii și intriga merg ca untul pe pâine. Caragiale îmbină tragicul și comicul cu o ușurință care trezește invidie în sufletul cititorului (cel puțin al meu).
Stefana
Cand am citit-o, pe vremea impuscatului, credeam ca o parte din umor e inventie. Azi imi dau seama ca asa au fost mereu politicienii romani.
Nicoleta
Una din cele mai celebre piese de teatru ale lui Caragiale. Splendida. Nu degeaba Caraghiale este un clasic
Benjamin
Super tare! Una dintre cele mai bune comedii romanesti dupa parerea mea!
Gemma Fasheun
