We’re delighted to announce the publication of 100 Dutch-Language Poems – From the Medieval Period to the Present Day, selected and translated by Paul Vincent and John Irons.
100 Dutch-Language Poems offers a wonderful new resource to poetry lovers around the world. It covers more than a millennium of poetry; from the very first written words in Dutch, a poem probably scribbled in the 11th century by a Dutch-speaking scribe in England to try out his pen, to the last poem by a young, spirited, award-winning twenty-first century female poet.
All poems, with one exception, have been translated into English by award-winning translators Paul Vincent and John Irons. They have decided to include the original Dutch poems with the translated versions thereby adding an extra dimension to this remarkable publication.
Bernadette Jansen op de Haar, publisher, commented: ‘I’m very excited about 100 Dutch-Language Poems which fits our mission statement like a glove.’
100 Dutch-Language poems will be published in September 2015.
