Crepuscular Destinies – FAilure between Hedonism and Self-Hatred. Mateiu I. Caragiale

The present study draws a comparison between the non-fictional prose of E.M. Cioran and the fictional one of Mateiu Caragiale, identifying the feeling of existential loss and despair as their common denominator. In Cioran’s case, this feeling is eventually converted in a perpetual mystical anarchism, challenging the negative capability of the sacred; in what regards Mateiu Caragiale fiction, a typical psychological compensation converts this feeling of existential loss into a buffo dandysm, a perpetual operetta nobility. Both of these attitudes, originating in a similar existential void, represent two fundamental answers of modernity at this feeling of Geworfenheit.

Keywords: modern Romanian literature, E.M. Cioran, Mateiu Caragiale, faces of modernity, dandysm.
