Olla Vogala (hinase) (All Birds (save)). A Canon of Dutch Literature
(Luc Devoldere) THE LOW COUNTRIES - 2016, № 24, PP. 90-113
In 2015 the Royal Academy of Dutch Language and Literature bent their heads together in Ghent over the canon, and came out with fifty titles, fifty works from between the end of the twelfth century and the nineteen-eighties. All the authors on the list are dead. The living need not feel frustrated. And to all haters of the canon, I say this: the canon is the conversation about the canon, the discussion, even the arguments about books and writers. Because you first have to have something if you want to set yourself against it.
