Arjen Duinker is one of Holland's most highly respected poets with over ten collections to his name, and an array of prizes including the prestigious Jan Campert Prize in 2001. Yet Duinker, by his own admission, does not fit into the mould of a Dutch poet, being far more concerned with reality than with abstractions. His poetry is very much about the reality of things as separate, self-contained entities, about flowers, stones, mountains, wind and water; he consistently tries to shed his own personality to make room for the things he experiences without thinking. This is a collection full of laughter, exuberance, tenderness and the poet's humanity, brought alive to an English-speaking readership for the first time in Willem Groenewegen's painstaking and sensitive translation.
