Abstract


This paper tries to pinpoint three main reasons why Havelaars struggles in improving the life of the indigenous can be said to be failures%2C namely Havelaars misinterpretation of the exploitation%2C his misguided perception%2C and his uncommitted consciousness. Apart from the failures of Max Havelaar%2C this novel leaves a rich record of the complex relation between the indigenous and their rulers%2C the indigenous (rulers) and the Dutch%2C and between the Dutch themselves.
