This week's Friday Verses are written by Femke Vindevogel. We translated her poem ‘Vechtscheiding’.
Femke Vindevogel has written a blackly comic tale about a quest for one’s true self on the disadvantaged side of town.
Every other Friday we treat you to beautiful verses by a poet from Flanders or the Netherlands. Sometimes an old forgotten poem, but mostly fresh verses by a young or unpublished poet.
In his monthly column, Dirk Vandenberghe draws attention to literary debuts from Flemish and Dutch writers which garnered less notice upon release than they deserve.
