Abstract
This contribution offers a textual analysis and contextual study of Antigonus, or The Complaints of the Common People (1841), an exemplary text from the oeuvre of the Antwerp poet Theodore Van Ryswyck. On the one hand, this text complies on various topics with the common practice and literary standards of nineteenth-century Flanders. On the other hand, the analysis and interpretation of Antigonus demonstrate that Van Ryswyck occupies an original place in the nineteenth-century Flemish literary landscape. This pioneer of the Flemish-Belgian literature criticizes the Belgian nation state, barely eleven years after the declaration of independence, and uses literary irony and humour in a very refined way. This article finally casts doubt on Van Ryswyck's posture littéraire as a popular poet and is a first attempt to puncture the myth about Van Ryswyck and his oeuvre
