Maurice D'Haese

Maurice D’Haese (1919-1981) was the author of a small but exceptional literary oeuvre. In literary history he never received the recognition he deserved as the author of one of the inescapable classics of the Second World War. His work has existentialist elements, and alienation features large. He was influenced by authors including Camus, Satre and Kafka, and along with Hugo Claus and Louis Paul Boon he was at the forefront of the (r)evolution that defines Flemish literature to this day.
