Audio Book – De wereld een dansfeest

(first published 1938)

Arthur van Schendel (1874-1946)
Language: Dutch

The dancer Daniel Walewijn, son of a Dutch father and a mother of Southern European descent, has the dance in the body so that nothing else exists for him. Even his relationship to the women is completely determined by this one passion. Both Daniel Walewijn and the melancholy Reynald, each in his own way, love Marion Ringelinck, who, just like Daniel, is sucked by the vocation for dancing. These three lives go parallel for a long time. In a series of stories, from the perspective of several persons involved with the main characters, Arthur van Schendel shows the lives of three people, whose fate it is to come into contact with each other, to be dependent on each other and yet to ignore each other
