Ecstasy: A Study of Happiness
by Louis Couperus
Publisher: Dodd, Mead and Company 1919
Number of pages: 240
This delicate story is Louis Couperus' third novel. At the time when it was written, the author was a leading member of what was then known as the 'sensitivist' school of Dutch novelists; and the reader will not be slow in discovering that the story possesses an elusive charm of its own, a charm marking a different tendency from that of the later books.
