What makes a novel good or bad? When is it literary, or quite the opposite? And can such notions be determined objectively? Perhaps they can. Certain elements in a book might be the cause of positive or negative judgments. This is what the KNAW-project the Riddle of Literary Quality at the Huygens Institute for Netherlands History is researching. To this end, readers of Dutch fiction can now give their opinion on recent novels.
We need your opinion too! Please help your fellow researchers, visit www.hetnationalelezersonderzoek.nl and fill out the questionnaire.
