Summary/Abstract: Modernist literature brought profound and ground-breaking transformation of the literary canons, a break with tradition and a search for the new, for innovation and experimentation that the world had not even dare to think of before. This came as a natural consequence of the age of modernity with its profound transformation of the historical, economic and social foundations of western culture. And accompanying all these changes and facing all the new challenges, there was the dandy, a true litmus of modernity, present on the boulevards of European capitals and streaming in fiction through the pages of some of the most representative works of modernist literature.
