Abstract

<b>'My all for Flanders, be it from the devil' : references to the Afrikaners in Cyriel Verschaeve's 'Oorlogsindrukken' - tribal brothers or traitors?</b> <br>This article retraces and evaluates references of the Anglo-Boer War in the writings of the Flemish poet-priest, Cyriel Verschaeve, particularly his war diary entitled <i>Oorlogsindrukken</i>. Analysis of his status as a cult figure during the First World War is followed by a comparison between his interest in the Boers and that of the greater Dutch-speaking community. Despite language and (perceived) genetic links between the Boers and the Flemish, Verschaeve evolved towards acceptance of the idea of collaborating with the invading Germans in order to secure Flemish self-rule.

In hierdie artikel word verwysings na die Anglo-Boereoorlog in die geskrifte van die Vlaamse priester-digter, Cyriel Verschaeve (en veral in sy oorlogsdagboek, <i>Oorlogsindrukken</i>) ondersoek en geëvalueer. 'n Analise van sy status as kultusfiguur gedurende die Eerste Wêreldoorlog word gevolg deur 'n vergelyking van sy belangstelling in die Boere met dié van die groter Nederlandssprekende gemeenskap. Ten spyte van taal- en (gewaande) genetiese bande tussen Boere en Vlaminge, het Verschaeve uiteindelik die idee van kollaborasie met die Duitse invallers aanvaar om sodoende Vlaamse selfregering te verseker.
