dc.description.abstract The study centred on "De heer Mellenberg" (from the collection "In de bovenkooi (1972) as a distinctive example of the short story as part of Biesheuvel's oeuvre. Biesheuvel's stories are treated in two ways: firstly in the traditional manner according to elements of structure, namely time, space, characters and perspective, in which events are incorporated; and in the second place the approach is based on the concept of code as subscribed to be D.W. Fokkema, who distinguishes among five different codes. The socio-codes and literary codes are stressed. The combination of these approaches supplies the optimal amount of information as far as Biesheuvel's prose is concerned, especially with regard to "De heer Mellenberg". Part of the dissertation centred on the study of Christ and biblical issues as themes as constitutive of part of the socio-code in Biesheuvel's work. The repeated pejorative use of Christ and pejorative references to Biblical truths are discussed and evaluated. The different approaches, the traditional and the code approaches are compared, and the conclusion is reached that an optimal amount of information on "De heer Mellenberg" is arrived at. In conclusion it is felt that although this study comers only a small and specifically delineated part of Biesheuvel's oeuvre, one can safely state that Biesheuvel can be regarded as a master among writers of short stories. en
