Nahuÿs ] For Free 晴 Kindle Author HardPress בּ When Max Havelaar was first published in Holland in 1860, it ignited a major political and social brouhaha The novel, written by a former official of the Dutch East Indian Civil Service under the pen name Multatuli, exposed the massive corruption and cruelty rife in the Dutch colony of Java Max Havelaar is an undeniably autobiographical novel like his hero, Multatuli the pseudonym for Eduard Douwes Dekker was an Assistant Resident of Lebak in Java like Havelaar in the novel, he resigned his position when his accusations of corruption and abuse were disregarded by higher authorities, resulting in years of poverty for both author and fictional hero Max Havelaar is told from several different perspectives the reader first meets an Amsterdam coffee dealer named Droogstoppel, a man so obsessed with coffee that his every thought and action is governed by it Droogstoppel has come by a manuscript from an old schoolmate who, down on his luck, has asked him to get it published The schoolmate is Havelaar, and the manuscript relates his experiences as an idealistic and generous young civil servant who tries to protect the poor and bring justice to the powerless The central part of the novel details conditions in Java, particularly Havelaar s efforts to correct injustices in the face of a corrupt government system That his efforts will prove futile soon becomes apparent, and there is something almost Greek in the inevitability of Havelaar s declining fortunes Despite its tragic themes, Max Havelaar is savagely funny, particularly the chapters narrated by Droogstoppel, a character unmatched for his veniality, narrow mindedness, or singular lack of understanding or imagination Though Multatuli s masterpiece is nearly 150 years old, it wears its age well, and Roy Edwards s excellent translation offers English speaking readers a wonderful opportunity to experience one of the Netherlands s great literary classics.This is a reproduction of a classic text optimised for kindle devices We have endeavoured to create this version as close to the original artefact as possible Although occasionally there may be certain imperfections with these old texts, we believe they deserve to be made available for future generations to enjoy.
