Grand Larcenies

Grand Larcenies features generous selections from the work of ten classic modern Dutch poets: Eva Gerlach, Gerrit Kouwenaar, Hester Knibbe, Hans R. Vlek, Rob Schouten, Willem van Toorn, J. Eijkelboom, H.H ter Balkt, K. Michel, and Esther Jansma.

The translator, a notable Welsh poet and writer now living in the Netherlands, takes his bearings from Robert Minhinnick's seminal Welsh anthology The Adulterer's Tongue, which attempts by means of experiment rather than rigid linguistic fidelity to approach the imaginative core of the original.

'These versions take risks,' Evans declares; 'they are no black-and-white photocopy, but they honour the originals' forms and intentions, making audible a wide array of individual styles and voices, and a Dutch sensibility that is both familiar and alien to us.'

A dual-language edition.
