The Kinker Association was founded in 1886 for the benefit of the many Dutch-speaking Flemings living and working in francophone Liège. Organizing lectures on a variety of subjects, the Association attempted to exert an emancipatory influence. Not only did it set up an extensive Dutch library but it also provided access to medical care and insurance. Above all, the Kinker Association wanted to boost the presence of Dutch-related cultural activities in the city. With its liberal sympathies and close links to the Willems Fonds, the Association met with opposition from various quarters, not least from the Catholic Church. This article looks in detail at the genesis, and rise and fall of the Association, its membership and its place and appeal within the wider socio-cultural context of late-nineteenth-century Wallonia.

In 1858 J.H. Bormans published the first edition of Hendrik van Veldeke’s legend of Saint Servatius which had only just come to light. Nearly forty years later, Camille Huysmans supplied additional information about the work’s discovery. In a humorous letter printed in the Limburgsch jaarboek (1895-1896) he revealed how one of his former teachers, during a visit to a friend’s house, had stumbled upon the fifteenth-century manuscript in the toilet, ready to be used as toilet paper. Only recently have scholars begun to cast doubt on Huysmans’s story. A closer look at Huysmans’s student career in Liège and his involvement in the association Onze Taal (Our Language) may shed new light on the origins and veracity of his account. [less ▲]

The depiction of Batavia is examined in W. J. Hofdijk’s long epic poem In ’t harte van Java (In Java’s Heart) published in 1881; a detailed description of the city was incorporated into his narrative, showing Batavia as seen through Javanese eyes, and thus turning the city into an emblem of the fatherland itself. Founded on the northern coast of Java in 1619, the city of Batavia was admired for its picturesque beauty and its overall European character. The qualities for which it was praised hint at Batavia’s curiously hybrid nature: whilst in many respects it differed dramatically from the Netherlands, it was at the same time portrayed as quintessentially Dutch. It was an exotic, far-away place and yet an integral part of the nation. This dichotomy represented an obvious complication for writers in the Netherlands eager to extol its virtues. [less ▲]

In 1884 Willem Kloos and Albert Verwey started work on Julia, a collection of forty poems written in the manner of the successful author Fiore della Neve (M.G.L. van Loghem). In their pamphlet The Incompetence of the Dutch Literary Critics (1886), in which Julia’s true authorship was revealed, Kloos and Verwey made plain that the poems had been conceived as deliberate nonsense, something the Dutch literary establishment had failed to recognize. Nevertheless, a close reading of the collection brings to light a number of textual similarities with Kloos’s and Verwey’s serious poetry written in the period 1883-1885. This article reveals Julia as a fascinating hybrid in which an older aesthetic coexists with a new poetical language associated with the Eighties Movement. [less ▲]

A hitherto unknown letter written by Johannes Kinker in 1824 has turned up in the Bibliotheek van het Boekenvak (Library of the Booktrade), University of Amsterdam. The letter is not only of interest from a biographical point of view but illustrates the confusing state of affairs surrounding copyright law in the United Kingdom of the Netherlands. King William I had reserved an important role for Dutch language teaching, Dutch literature and the national book trade in the integration process between the Northern and Southern parts of the realm. However, Kinker’s letter makes plain on a very practical level the deficiencies of the new copyright rules, which the King had signed into law in 1817, and the obstacles that hindered their implementation in the Southern provinces.

Like Percy Bysshe Shelley, whose poetry proved an important source of inspiration, Jacques Perk was much preoccupied with the reception of his work and the complex, often antagonistic relationship between the author and his readers. His letters to Carel Vosmaer bear out how Perk had a particular type of reader in mind when writing his poems, including the famous lyric ‘Iris’. In the introductory matter, as well as in the poems themselves, he promoted reading strategies that, to some extent, foreshadow Wolfgang Iser’s ideas as developed in his Rezeptionsästhetik. The reactions to Perk’s work show the various ways in which contemporary and later readers defied his (implicit) reading instructions. [less ▲]
