Аннотация

The Lion of Flanders, or the Battle of the Golden Spurs (Dutch: De Leeuw van Vlaenderen, of de Slag der Gulden Sporen) is a major novel first published in 1838 by the Belgian writer Hendrik Conscience (1812–83).

An early example of the historical fiction genre, the Lion of Flanders focuses on the medieval Franco-Flemish War and the Battle of the Golden Spurs of 1302 in particular.

It is written in Conscience's typical stylistic romanticism and has been described as the "Flemish national epic".

"Fate" is the most characteristic of Couperus's novels translated into English, the book in which he apparently has given most of his own inner self, of his intimate personal attitude toward life.

Its conception of Fate harks back to that of the classic Greek dramatists, its modern setting making the ancient note all the more striking. The story, then, here offered, is certainly worthy of representing in a foreign tongue the only Dutch novelist who is of the company of the world's masters of fiction to-day.
