Belle de Zuylen et les “talents” des Hollandaises

This contribution discusses the reception, surprising in a way, of the Dutch translation of Belle de Zuylen’s famous declaration « Je n’ai pas les talents subalternes ». The formula used by translator Greetje van den Bergh has taken on an independent life in the Netherlands and has recently been applied to those women from whom Belle was distancing herself.
