Never the Twain

by: Abdoel Moeis

The novel Never the Twain ranks among modern Indonesian fiction’s most popular works. Hanafi, the novel’s protagonist, is madly in love with Corrie du Bussee, a beautiful Eurasian, though he is betrothed to his cousin Rapiah. The romantic conflict serves as an allegory for pre-independent Indonesia when, as it struggled to have a national identity, the nation had to choose between adhering to traditional values or adopting Western notions of progress and humanity.
