After the secularization which, analogous to developments in western culture as a whole, established itself in nineteenth and twentieth century Dutch literature, a countermovement has recently been noticed. In the works of several authors one sees a distinct religious and ethical reorientation. This article focuses on the case of the novelist and essayist Frans Kellendonk (1952-1990), who articulated his social, political and religious ideas in a way which shows affinity with T.S. Eliot, Ezra Pound, Percy Wyndham Lewis, F.T. Marinetti and H. Marsman, authors who were part of the broad modernist movement during the period 1910-1930.
