Quote #7

There was the doughty dough-nut, the tenderer oly koek, and the crisp and crumbling cruller; sweet cakes and short cakes, ginger cakes and honey cakes, and the whole family of cakes. (1.43)

We get it. There were a lot of cakes at the Van Tassels' mansion. This whole passage seems like a still life painting, existing only to show off how much food you can waste at once.

Quote #8

She wore the ornaments of pure yellow gold, which her great-great-grandmother had brought over from Saardam. (1.20)

Mother Nature isn't the only one wearing gold chains. This is the only time we see someone acting wealthy in a way we would recognize today. What do you make of that?
