Cyriel Buysse? No, I don’t know him! The Geschiedenis van de Nederlandse literatuur (GNL) and the schoolbooks in secondary education in Flanders. Cyriel Buysse as case study

Schoolbooks as they are used in secondary education in Flanders often determine the way an author is presented and taught. For most pupils these schoolbooks are the only remaining source to get into contact with literature in an educational context. Many literary authors are subject to a double reduction. Not only an inevitable quantitative reduction of their complete works but also a reduction concerning content in order to use them as typical examples of a literary period. Tools like the GNL among others can supply however a broader view on these authors. In this article we discuss the importance of schoolbooks, the way they are organised and how they can possibly benefit from the GNL. We use the author Cyriel Buysse (1859-1932) as an example.
