    Description

    After the secularization which, analogous to developments in western culture as a whole, established itself in nineteenth- and twentieth-century Dutch literature, recently a countermovement can be noticed. In the works of several authors one sees a distinct religious and ethical reorientation. This turn will be analyzed within the context of the process of modernization, more specifically in terms of a supposed antinomy between literary modernism and postmodernism.
