KIRKUS REVIEW

This ambitious bilingual anthology surveys all of Dutch poetry, with over one hundred poems by eighty or so poets, beginning with anonymous ballads from the 14th century and ending with a number of contemporaries who seem barely to register the impact of literary modernism but sing in the same tight measures of the medieval bards.
