dc.description.abstractEdward W. Said, Culture and Imperialism (1993) offers opportunities for rereading and re-interpretation of canonical historical literary works by way of focussing on the relation between culture and empire. Nicolaas Beets, “De familie Kegge,” seems to be a good example for this “contrapuntal reading.” The short novel protests in a mild way against slavery and behaviour of slave owners and plantation owners in the Caribbean. In later work Beets proves to have become a fierce anti-slavery advocate, an aspect of his work that until now is hardly ever discussed and has been neglected in traditional criticism.pl_PL
