The hidden force by Louis Couperus( Book )

193 editions published between 1887 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 1,707 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This novel, set in Java around 1900, is centered around the family of Van Oudijck. Van Oudijck is the resident, or the man in charge, of the district of Labuwangi in the Dutch colony. Not yet fifty when the book begins, he is successful and good at his job - he's been resident here for some five years - and likes his life. Van Oudijck is not eager to get a promotion and move up to being the resident in Batavia (Jakarta) or a similarly important place - and he dreads the thought of retiring in the Netherlands, where he would be a nobody. This novel is a story about the futility and cost of colonialism to the local population, and to the colonists themselves

"Cornelie De Retz Van Loo, a twenty-three-year-old divorcee from an upper-class Hague milieu, tries with mixed feelings to begin a new life in Italy in 1900. After some time in Rome, she discovers that Italy itself can never bring her the consolation she seeks. She meets the Dutch painter Duco van der Staal, and they move in together, flouting convention. Almost their only acquaintances are an amorous Italian prince and the American heiress he wants to marry for her money. Duco and Cornelie are happy but poor, and as their finances go from bad to worse, Cornelie, in desperation, takes a position as a companion to an elderly American lady in Nice. There she encounters her ex-husband." "Considered one of Louis Couperus' most compelling achievements in fiction, Inevitable immerses us in turn-of-the-century Rome and examines a life in which Art is an exalted form of love. The social issues Couperus addresses in Inevitable provoked waves of criticism upon its publication in spite of the author's tremendous popularity."--BOOK JACKET
