Particularly, the Flemish literature of the first half of the 20th Century, was largely strongly influenced by a stiffling climate of religious repression, originating from the widespread terror of Catholicism. In this morally depressing climate, there was little room for free relations, and marriages were often maintained, as divorce was an unspeakable and unthinkable option.

Thus, Komen en gaan is a short novel that illustrates this type of repressive atmosphere. The main character is unhappy with his marriage, and steals glances at other women, but the prevailing depressing atmosphere prevents him from breaking loose from his failed marriage, or developing an extra-marital affair.

A depressing short novel. ( )
