‘Only in my poems can I dwell' The Work of J. Slauerhoff
(Eep Francken) The Low Countries - 1999, № 7, pp. 166-174
The poet and prose writer J. Slauerhoff is one of the most important authors in Dutch literature. Critical views on his work have nevertheless always been mixed. This article paints a portrait of this 'Frisian Rimbaud', a late romantic whose best work is a convincing portrayal of the oppressive paradoxes which determine his character (with two poems and a story in translation).
