‘A short name on a small stone'. The Poetry of Christine D'haen
(Hans Vandevoorde) The Low Countries - 1999, № 7, pp. 175-183
Christine D'haen has proved to be one of the greatest poets to emerge since the Second World War. She introduced new themes into Dutch literature: that of house and garden, children's games and games of love; and she did it from a feminine perspective. For her, poetry is 'the perfect speech of the world, the voice of humankind, which does not understand why they, the weak, are slaughtered'. (with six translated poems)
