Een watervlugge afwisseling van literaire generaties en hun tijdschriften, modes en stromingen, dat is de geschiedenis van de literatuur in Nederland en Vlaanderen tussen 1900 en 1945. Het is de tijd van de opkomst en onderƯgang van totalitaire ideologieën die ook hun sporen nalaten in de letteren. Maar allesbepalend zijn de twee wereldoorloƯgen die de statusƯ quo van de negentiende eeuw vernietigen. Vlaamse dichters trekken in de Grote Oorlog ten strijde 'ineen geur van bloed en rozen'. Oorlog verandert voorgoed de manier waarop schrijvers en dichters in de Lage Landen inde eerste helft van de vorige eeuw naar de wereld kijken. De literatuur in tijden van oorlog, getekend door collaboratie en verzet, is integraal onderdeel van deze literatuur geschiedenis in breedbeeld. Die ruime visie bestrijkt verder bijvoorbeeld het verschijnsel moderniteit, hoge én lage literatuur, jazz, literaire journalistiek, film, radio, maar ook de populariteit van vrouwelijke auteurs en koloniale romans. Er staat in 'Bloed en rozen' geen hek om de Nederlandse letteren. Literatoren in Noord en Zuid lieten zich inspireren door vakgenoten uit het buitenland en ook die 'literaire internationale' hoort bij de geschiedenis van de Nederlandse literatuur.

In this beautiful and uplifting gay romance, two teen track stars discover first love as they train for the biggest relay race of their young lives. Chiseled Dutch phenom Gijs Blom stars as Sieger, a thoughtful 15-year-old who grapples mightily with his emerging gayness. Equally handsome Ko Zandvliet co-stars as his love interest, the spirited and outgoing Marc. In their boyish summer courtship the two of them swim, bike, run - and share ice creams and kisses as they gradually find the courage to be vulnerable with one another. The romance between them unfolds with a palpable sense of longing - and an aching sequence of heartache as Sieger tries to fight the inevitable.

"This season begins with a power vacuum that protagonists across Westeros and Essos look to fill. At Castle Black, Jon Snow struggles to balance the demands of the Night's Watch with those of newly-arrived Stannis Baratheon, who styles himself the rightful king of Westeros. Meanwhile, Cersei scrambles to hold on to power in King's Landing amidst the Tyrells and the rise of a religious group led by the enigmatic High Sparrow, while Jamie embarks on a secret mission. Across the Narrow Sea, Arya seeks an old friend while a fugitive Tyrion finds a new cause. And as danger mounts in Meereen, Daenerys Targaryen finds that her tenuous hold on the city requires some hard sacrifices."--Container.

100 Dutch-Language Poems offers a wonderful new resource to poetry lovers around the world. It covers more than a millennium of poetry; from the very first written words in Dutch, a poem probably scribbled in the 11th century by a Dutch-speaking scribe in England to try out his pen, to the last poem by a young, spirited, award-winning twenty-first century female poet.Paul Vincent and John Irons have opted to restrict their selection to one poem per poet, no matter how important the poet. They used their own extensive knowledge of Dutch poetry to make a selection of classic, innovative and influential poems which together represent poetry from the Low Countries throughout the ages. They made a special effort to achieve the right balance in terms of earlier versus later, male versus female and North versus South.All poems, with one exception, have been translated into English by award-winning translators Paul Vincent and John Irons. They have decided to include the original Dutch poems with the translated versions thereby adding an extra dimension to this remarkable publication.Guido Gezelle's 't Er viel 'ne keer (A Little Leaf Once Fluttered) has been translated by Francis Jones using an English dialect. Paul and John have written a foreword full of interesting details about the selection process. Gaston Franssen, assistant professor of Literary Culture at the University of Amsterdam, has added an afterword in which he discusses how the Low Countries landscape has influenced Dutch-language poetry.

  • Connaissez-vous Ad Dekkers ? Eric Morin -- Ad Dekkers ou la quête de l'essentiel -- Ad Dekkers Op zoek naar de essentie Piet Augustijn -- Ad Dekkers : In search of the essence Piet Augustijn -- Biographie -- Eric Morin -- Données documentaires -- Françoise Pineau -- Sélection d'oeuvres.
"A la fin des années 1960, la ville de Gorinchem dans le sud des Pays-Bas accueille des artistes plasticiens dont la renommée ira croissant. Pour Ad Dekkers, l'un des sept, ils sont les "koele minnaars" faisant preuve d'une "passion raisonnée" pour explorer la lumière, la couleur, les formes et l'espace. ur un peu plus de 10 ans, Ad Dekkers développe une production abondante et originale qui met en valeur les reliefs, les sculptures et les dessins. Exigeant et rigoureux, il abandonne un à un tous les éléments plastiques qui lui paraissent superflus dans sa mise en valeur de l'espace. Il est en quête de l'essentiel. Ce lien très fort entre questionnements sur le sens de ta vie et travail artistique constitue l'un des traits distinctifs d'Ad Dekkers. Artiste reconnu dans les mondes germaniques et anglo-saxons, il jouit d'une influence limitée dans les pays francophones. Cette publication partiellement trilingue (français, néerlandais, anglais) est l'occasion de découvrir ou redécouvrir l'artiste et de disposer des éléments d'une rétrospective de son oeuvre."--P.
