This book is a collection of twelve articles from the 1995 Berkeley Conference on Dutch Literature, ranging from critical essays on post-war Dutch poets as well as a re-examination of the current literary history of Dutch poetry. It deals with new currents in Dutch poetry, presented by American, Dutch, and Flemish netherlandists. It will be of interest to literary scholars beyond the field of Dutch poetry, since there is a strong comparative component to it; comparing Dutch with non-Dutch poetry.
