Summary/Abstract: The review discusses Ewa Paczoska’s book on the modernity signals in 19th century and on the 19th century continuations in the subsequent cultural formations. The researcher’s thesis about the blurred borderlines between tradition and modernity is based on a specific selection of threads and aspects of the analysed pieces (of Polish and European 19th, 20th, and 21st c. literature) corresponding with the paradigms typical of postmodernism. Cultural continuity and smooth linearity can be observed in the discussed images of the city, travel and otherness, as well as in the consecutive methods of defining Polishness and history perception (biographies, narrations)
