Wouldn't "Dutch novelists" be a better title. This would keep it more in line with corresponding articles of other languages. Moreover, there would be no need for the somewhat awkward explanation for literature Pethan 09:36, 30 Jul 2004 (UTC)
This article is called "Dutch literature". It is, however, nothing more than a list of Dutch authors. Needs either cleanup to become a real article or alternatively a rename to "List of Dutch authors" (or something similar). --Plek 12:02, 27 Jan 2005 (UTC)
After long deliberation (mostly because of the time involved) I've decided to write this article bit by bit. I'll flesh it out from time to time and would like to explicitly welcome other Wikipedians to contribute to the text in order to produce a good article together. Curt Woyte 10:46, May 4, 2005 (UTC)
As you can see, I've started to copy-edit and wikify the 1911 raw source material that user:RustySpear included, aiming to remove the cleanup tag once editing is complete. Any help, though, is appreciated! Curt Woyte 15:04, 12 December 2005 (UTC)
I can join you at some point. But I have to first sort out some other stuff. I'll come back when I'm ready. Alx-plD 09:23, 13 December 2005 (UTC)
Thank you, most appreciated. Perhaps when you're ready, we could divide sections between ourselves to edit? In the meantime, I'll press on with this labour of love. Curt Woyte 12:28, 13 December 2005 (UTC)
This article is looooong. Wouldn't it be better to provide a short summary here and link to separate articles about "Medieval Dutch Literature", "Renaissance Dutch Literature", etc.? - user:22.214.171.124
Thanks for your concern. In fact, shortening the article is what's being done right now. User:RustySpear provided us with a load of 1911 Britannica information and it is currently being sifted through for relevancy. My rough estimate is that the article will shrink with another 35% or so after 1911 NPOV hyperbole and wordiness are trimmed off; when we're done doing that I think it will be a good moment to see whether the subsections need separate articles. - Curt Woyte 17:43, 13 December 2005 (UTC)
I've given it some thought and agree with you that (almost) finished sections such as Earliest Stages and Renaissance/Golden Age are long even in their trimmed-down versions. I'll start moving them to separate subpages (whenever my schedule allows). - Curt Woyte 08:29, 14 December 2005 (UTC)
As I am working on creating articles about 19th century Flemish writers, it becomes clear that the development of literature in the Netherlands and Flanders was quite different. I propose to keep the article on Flemish literature a separate article. Pvosta 19:32, 4 January 2007 (UTC)
There some stylish differences between Dutch and Flemish literature, I dont think those (or the amount of 19th century Dutch literature in Belgium) is enough for a separate article.Rex 20:26, 4 January 2007 (UTC)
