'More poetry from the Netherlands than any other country'

The large amount of Dutch poetry being translated into English hasn't gone unnoticed. At the launch of literary magazine 'The Dutch Riveter' on 17 March 2021, editor Rosie Goldsmith mentioned that "we have a lot of poetry [in The Dutch Riveter], more than we've ever had in any other magazine".

We have compiled a list of recently published poetry collections from Dutch authors that are now also available to English speaking audiences.
