The Hidden Force de Louis Couperus (1900)
Pertence à série publicada
Set in Java at the height of Dutch colonial rule in the East Indies, Couperus's 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 Oudijck's promiscuous wife Léonie proves to be his Achilles heel, and his seemingly impregnable authority disintegrates. Pushkin Collection editions feature a spare, elegant series style and superior, durable components. The Collection is typeset in Monotype Baskerville, litho-printed on Munken Premium White Paper and notch-bound by the independently owned printer TJ International in Padstow. The covers, with French flaps, are printed on Colorplan Pristine White Paper. Both paper and cover board are acid-free and Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified.
