Overview

Poetry has long been one of the most important literary genres in the Netherlands, and although of very high quality, Dutch verse remains almost unknown beyond its borders. This collection of more than one hundred Dutch poems in English translation begins with a selection from the best known medieval pieces, and includes most of the major poets of the ensuing centuries: Roemer Visscher, Vondel, Huygens, Gezelle, Kloos, and Verwey among many others. This unique book, which includes the original Dutch text of each poem, finally opens the spectrum of Dutch poetry to English-speaking readers, whose only access thus far has been limited to translations of contemporary verse.
