This volume contains essays focusing on the various concepts of literary canon as the foundation of modern national identity. Some of the contributions examine issues related to the Eastern European avant-garde movements. Imre József Balázs in his 'Avant-garde as a Provocation in Hungarian Literature from Romania' analyzes how avant-garde culture could be an alternative for the regionalization plan for Transylvanian Hungarians during the 1918-1926 period. 'Isidore Isou or the Meanders of an Identity Construction' of Alexandra Cătană examines the national and artistic implications of the identity construction of the young Isidore Isou, founder of radical avant-garde movement Lettrism. Ana-Maria Stan in her 'Reflections upon the Italian Cultural and Literary Presences/ Representations in Interwar Romania' clarifies the place and impact held by Italian Futurism within the larger framework of Italian literary and artistic representations in Romania. 'Le nationalisme des avant-gardes: les contextes mineurs' of Adrian Tudurachi examines the early 1920s in Romania when the avant-gardists were explicitly and intentionally involved in the politics of the Jewish minority by depicting their plans and actions. 'Quarant’anni d’avanguardia: quattro lettere inedite di Tristan Tzara e Lajos Kassák' by Gábor Dobó deals with four unpublished letters between the Dadaist Tristan Tzara and the Hungarian avant-garde artist Lajos Kassák that aim to promote their art in as many languages and places as possible.
