New Dutch Books in English
The English-speaking world continues to catch up on Dutch classics. An Untouched House, the first English book publication of Willem Frederik Hermans’s Het behouden huis, is receiving some excellent reviews in the UK and has just been published in the USA. Other noteworthy recent publications include two new anthologies. The Lonely Funeral, a selection of essays by Maarten Inghels and F. Starik, features poems written for and read at paupers’ funerals in Amsterdam and Antwerp. Swallows and Floating Horses: An Anthology of Frisian Literature, part of Francis Boutle Publishers’ Lesser Used Languages of Europe Series, is a massive bilingual collection of both prose and poetry from the eighth century to the current day.
