Joost van den Vondel (1587-1679) at 425
(Karel Porteman) The Low Countries - 2012, № 20, pp. 126-139
This converted Catholic “Milton of the Low Countries” gets his first presentation here and that was about time. His 24 tragedies form a unique contribution to European drama in the 17th century, and he is one of the great creators of modern Biblical Tragedy. In hundreds of poems in every conceivable genre he followed European history closely and critically. His whole oeuvre is thoroughly pictorial from the outset. That too makes him an eminent representative of the European baroque. (With an anthology of poems in Dutch and English translation).
