This article offers an afterthought on modernity of nineteenth-century people, which took place within the space of a paradox. The category of 'modernité', occurring in the very middle of that century, comes up to us today enveloped in a 'remoteness' and a plainly anachronic character. The title nineteenth-century experience of modernity is of the essay authoress' interest as a phenomenon distributed in time, one of changing dynamism.
