Chasing Impressions: a Comparative Cultural Analysis of Impressionistic Criticism
in Hungary

The aim of this article is to examine whether the comparative cultural analysis of a critical text can provide a greater understanding of why Nyugat’s editor, Miksa Fenyő, chose impressionistic criticism’s highly aesthetic, yet seemingly quixotic approach to promote modern literature in Hungary, as opposed to selecting more conventional means. Applying a comparative cultural approach also opens this
analysis to an exploration of the broader connotations implied by Fenyő’s Jewish origins and his position at an industrial lobby association, GyOSz.
