Eekhoud, Georges


Born May 27, 1854, in Antwerp; died May 28,1927, in Brussels. Belgian writer who wrote in French.

Eekhoud, a member of La Jeune Belgique, was one of Belgium’s first novelists. At first a regionalist writer, he was the author of the novel Kees Doorik (1883) and the short-story collection Country Fair (1884). The novel The New Carthage (1888) offered a highly original, typically Belgian portrayal of the “octopus city.” The novel The Libertines of Antwerp (1912) expressed Utopian ideas of the “emancipation of the flesh” and deified nature.
