Louis Couperus was catapulted to prominence in 1889 with Eline Vere, a psychological novel inspired by mile Zola, Gustave Flaubert, and Leo Tolstoy. Eline Vere is a young, financially comfortable heiress, who, despite being pretty and well-liked, tends to be withdrawn and subject to bleak moods. She accepts the marriage proposal of a family friend, only to later break off the engagement, convinced that her sickly but charismatic cousin Vincent is in love with her. After months of uncertainty, Vincent drifts elsewhere, leaving Eline to dream of all that she has lost in her young life. Award-wi.
