A Bilingual Anthology of Contemporary Dutch Poetry by Women

If you love language and live away from the country you were born, if the language you speak daily is not the language of your childhood, and if you still have strong connections with your country of origin, you intermittently fall prey to a kind of missionary zeal. An exciting piece of writing in your 'new' language will make you want to translate it immediately, to make it available to your ex-patriots and the other way around. Good writing in your mother tongue makes you want to share it with your new friends.

These compiled modern poems have been included in both their original (Dutch) and translated (English) forms.

Paperback, 95 pages, Includes: Forward, Author and Translator biographies, and Acknowledgements sections (All in English).
