This week's Friday Verses are written by Ann Bellemans. We translated her poem ‘Krater’.
As Poet Laureate of Belgium, Kör wants everyone to feel the power of poetry, especially those who don't naturally come into contact with it.
Show your love for language by playing, fooling around and experimenting with it, in the same way William Shakespeare, Georges Perec, and their translators Guido van der Wiel and Gilbert Adair did.
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 Sometimes an old forgotten poem, but mostly fresh verses by a young or unpublished poet.
