Dutch literature is far from being a merely limited to the European territory. Since the Dutch built up a colonial empire their culture got influences from the overseas parts the Antilles, Surinam, Brazil, South Africa, Ceylon and the Indonesia archipelago. Prof. Jeroen Dewulf (Dutch Studies Berkeley) worked out a lecture on Indo Dutch journalist and writer Tjalie Robinson (1911-1974). As a son of a Dutch father and an Indo (Eurasian) mother, he was a child of two different worlds. In his short stories and publication Tjalie expresses the mindset and feelings of a person who didn't accept ethnic, social and cultural boundaries. Tjalie Robinson's work is therefore an excellent example of Dutch literature with strong non-typical non-Dutch items and mentality.
