Product Overview

"A very good Dutch poet is Nijhoff. His poem Awater is the poem to reckon with, one of the grandest works of poetry in this 20th century. It''s a completely different thing. This is the future of poetry, I think, or it at least paves the way for a very interesting future."--Joseph Brodsky, Conversations (2003)

Awater, written in 1934, is the most important Dutch poem of the twentieth century. This edition is introduced by a leading Martinus Nijhoff specialist and includes the Dutch text; translations made in the 1940s, 1960s, and 2000s; and an essay by Nijhoff on Awater''s origins.
