In the Belly of the Boa. The Work of Peter Verhelst
(Bart Vervaeck) The Low Countries - 2001, № 9, pp. 197-206
An impression of the ‘difficult' poems and novels of Flemish writer Peter Verhelst. In the space of thirteen years he has constructed a totally individual oeuvre, with a style and themes - self-annihilation, the body, death - which are immediately recognisable even as they continue to provide unexpected fireworks. (with three poems and two prose extracts in translation)
