About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1929, this book provides a detailed account of the relationship between Dutch and English literature, with special attention given to the work of the author Justus van Effen. The text focuses on the early eighteenth century, 'when a pushful English culture penetrated to the continent, and cosmopolitan Holland was an effective broadcast station relaying the newly discovered island culture'. Notes and an appendix section are also included. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in eighteenth-century European literature and literary criticism.
