Neel Doff (1858-1942)

Born in the slums of a small Dutch town, Neel Doff moved to Belgium at the age of 16 and eventually rose to the upper echelons of Brussels' society. At the age of 51, she began writing in French. Her works are mostly autobiographical, describing her ordeals as a starving child and prostitute out of necessity, before freeing herself through her own courage and determination. Evelyne Wilwerth has written her biography based on scholarly research, yet it reads like a novel.

Amsterdam, fin du siècle dernier. Keetje a neuf ans. Dans sa famille, la misère s'est implantée à demeure : elle va s'aggravant à chaque nouvel enfant, et l'usure et le découragement de ses parents rendent de plus en plus fréquents les jours de famine et de détresse... C'est avec violence et simplicité que Neel Doff, des années plus tard, raconte ses années noires d'enfance et d'adolescence. Avec précision, « tatouée » par la misère, elle prend la plume pour évoquer le froid extrême, les expulsions, les puces, les vaines recherches d'un travail quel qu'il soit et, pour finir, la prostitution. Neel Doff (1858-1942), troisième d'une famille de neuf enfants, connaît la misè...

Few full-length studies exist in English on French-speaking authors from Belgium. What, if any, are the particular features of francophone Belgian writing? This book explores questions of cultural and literary identity, and offers an overview of currents in critical debate regarding the place of francophone Belgian writing and its relationship to its larger neighbour, but also engages with broader questions concerning the classification of 'francophone' literature. The study brings together well-known and less well-known modern and contemporary writers (Suzanne Lilar, Neel Doff, Dominique Rolin, Jacqueline Harpman, Francoise Mallet-Joris, Jean Muno, Nicole Malinconi, and Amelie Nothomb) whose works share a number of recurring themes and features, notably a preoccupation with questions of identity and alterity. Overall, the study highlights the diverse ways in which these questions of cultural identity and alterity emerge as a dominant theme throughout the corpus, viewed through a series of literary and cultural frameworks which bring together perspectives both local and global."
