Abstract

The article analyses Het verboden rijk(1931) by the Dutch poet and novelist J.J. Slauerhoff (1898-1936) as modernist fiction which is experimental, narrated from multiple viewpoints with a complex handling of time. It focuses in particular on the narrative's movement between the twentieth and sixteenth centuries, and between a radio operator and the Portuguese poet Camoens. The text is read as thematizing cultural identity, rejecting history, which is used to support the status quo, criticizing European colonial culture, and ultimately moving towards the other, non-European culture-the forbidden realm.
