The Hidden Force
The Hidden Force | Louis Couperus
Set in Java at the height of Dutch colonial rule in the East Indies, Couperuss evocative and sensual narrative depicts the clash between Western rationalism, represented by the district commissioner Otto van Oudijck, and ancient indigenous mystical traditions upheld by the local native prince, Sunario. The behaviour of Van Oudijcks promiscuous wife Lonie proves to be his Achilles heel, and his seemingly impregnable authority disintegrates.
