This article argues that additional glance on the various movements which played a significant role in the formulation of the ‘general theory’ of Modernism is still at need. The article focuses on the unique function of ‘life-creation’ in process of modernist historical cohesion and formation. It discusses the important operating of ‘experiment’ and ‘technical advances’ in establishing modernist ideas about literature and culture. The article also looks at the role played in the cultural debates by the newly-born ideas of ‘form’, ‘structure’ on the one hand, and notions of utopian
manipulations with surrounding reality by means of art and aesthetics on the other.
