Chapter Summary

This essay deals with the reception of Neue Sachlichkeit among Dutch authors and critics between 1925 and 1940. I will argue thata) in Dutch literature the poetics and stylistic devices of Neue Sachlichkeit are combined with expressionist poetics and stylistic devices;b) due to the dominant traditionalist poetics and a deep scepticism towards the avant-garde, Neue Sachlichkeit in the Netherlands usually was seen as a quickly transient fashion. Authors who put narrative and stylistic devices of the Neue Sachlichkeit into practice were ridiculed and marginalized.Before going into the literary situation in the Netherlands during the period 1925- 1940 I will sketch the main features of German Neue Sachlichkeit in so far as they are relevant for Dutch literature.
