Chapter 10: Edwards 1967: Preface

Access Roy Edwards’s introduction here. Read it carefully. Consider the following:

1. In contrast with both previous prefaces, this one begins with Multatuli’s biography and with details of the novel’s first publication.

2. Who is Multatuli now being compared to in the latter part of the preface? And in what capacity is he being compared with this other figure?

Now go to the last Question.
