Deyssel, Lodewijk van

▪ Dutch author
pseudonym  of Karel Joan Lodewijk Alberdingk Thijm  
born Sept. 22, 1864, Amsterdam, Neth.
died Jan. 26, 1952, Haarlem

      leading Dutch writer and critic of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

      The son of J.A. Alberdingk Thijm (who promoted a Roman Catholic cultural revival in The Netherlands), he joined the largely agnostic individualistic group associated with the avant-garde literary magazine De nieuwe gids (“The New Guide”). His passionate critical writings were published as Verzamelde opstellen, 11 vol. (1894–1911; “Collected Essays”). He began writing as an admirer of Émile Zola and published a naturalistic novel, Een liefde (1887; “A Love Affair”). Later he abandoned naturalism and wrote highly personal impressionistic prose and clever, somewhat overwrought “prose-verses.” A sensitive artist with great powers of observation and a keen eye for detail, he was a powerful influence on Dutch literature, as both an original and critical writer, for many years.
