By Gerard Reve, Gerard van het Reve, Simon van het Reve

Sorry for all you non-dutchies, yet this can be actually a vintage, if no THE vintage, of Dutch literature. i presumed it may be here.

De Avonden is een van de belangrijkste boeken uit de Nederlandse literatuur het is klassiek geworden als de aangrijpende beschrijving van de verstikkende saaiheid die Nederland in de naoorlogse jaren beheerste. In Frits van Egters weerspiegelt zich de jeugd, die zijn leven ziet verlopen in zinloosheid, eentonigheid en eenzaamheid. Humor en de hoop dat er toch een hoger en groter Iets bestaat, houden hem op de been. De geluiden van afschuw over dit boek, bijvoorbeeld door Godfried Bomans, die meende dat Reves geestelijke gezondheid 'bij een langer aanhouden van deze gesteldheid ernstig gevaar loopt', zijn inmiddels ernstig tegengesproken door de velen voor wie De Avonden het mooiste boek is dat ze ooit lazen. De roman beleefde meer dan vijftig drukken en wordt beschouwd als een van de belangrijkste romans van na 1945 een roman die steeds weer nieuwe lezers weet te veroveren.

Sample text

The anonymous author proves that Collins is off by two weeks in his chronology, incorrectly fixing the date upon which the novel舗s main question hinges, that at which Laura leaves Blackwater Park, her husband舗s estate. 舡 Also, in order to create tension surrounding the accuracy of this date, critics noted, Collins had to 舠invent ignorance which could not exist,舡 in the Blackwater Park housekeeper, Mrs. Michelson, who inexplicably cannot remember the date in question even though it coincided with the termination of her own employment.

1843 Wordsworth becomes poet laureate. Collins舗s first story, 舠The Last Stage Coachman,舡 appears in the Illuminated Magazine. 1844 Collins and his friend Charles Ward travel to Paris. John Stuart Mill舗s Essays on Some Unsettled Questions of Political Economy is published. J. M. W Turner paints Rain, Steam, and Speed舒The Great Western Railway, in a style that is a distinct contrast to William Collins舗s landscapes. 1845 IɃlani; or Tahiti as It Was, a Romance, Collins舗s first attempt at a novel, is rejected by publishers Chapman and Hall.

The iconic poster for the show, created by Fred Walker, features a frightened woman, bundled in white drapery, who looks over her shoulder while she pushes her way through an open door and flees into the night. Its cramped perspective and substantial central figure echo Pre-Raphaelite design, and, fittingly for the visual artist in Collins, it is one of the finest examples of nineteenth-century English poster illustration. The first film versions of The Woman in White were two American silents released in 1912.
