Abstract

Until recently very little was known about the reception in the Netherlands of the French novelist J.-K. Huysmans (1848-1907), an “inexplicable amalgam of a Parisian aesthete and a Dutch painter” as he called himself. When scholars referred to this question, they did so in a very circumstantial way and hence created several misunderstandings: in the Dutch Catholic press for example, critics hardly showed any interest in J.-K. Huysmans’ later, post-conversion writings. This article seeks to rectify this impression and, to this end, uses a case study to clarify this issue: , one of the major Catholic journals in the Netherlands at the turn of the century, almost systematically reviewed the latter part of Huysmans’ oeuvre.
