Twee vrouwen

Twee vrouwen Review

'Als je je altijd een dochter voelt, is er maar één manier om van je moeder af te komen, en dat is door zelf moeder te worden.'

In 1975 verraste Harry Mulisch zijn publiek met een ogenschijnlijk traditioneel vertelde roman over de liefde tussen een gescheiden kunsthistorica en een jong meisje. Maar Twee vrouwen vertoont ook parallellen met de Oedipus- en Orpheus-mythen en loopt af als een klassiek noodlotsdrama.

Title:Twee vrouwen
Edition Language:Dutch

    Oh my... From the start I wasn't sure about this one. I enjoyed the beautiful sentences written by Harry Mulisch. The story was a bit vague in the beginning, as it sometimes tends to be in literature,...

    This is my first Mulisch book and I like to not read the big ones from writers first. I couldn't stop reading this, I just wanted to keep on reading. I loved it but there was also something missing, b...

    Got this book free in my Dutch Class and it was kinda interesting. The story is (like the title says) about two woman who start a relationship, break up, meet again and everything else that happens wi...

    It seems really creepy for a guy to write a story about "Two women", but there you go. It's the story of a woman whose husband leaves her, whereupon she decides to start a lesbian relationship with an...
