Neeltje Maria Min

Neeltje Maria Min

In 1966, Neeltje Maria Min made a spectacular debut as a 22-year-old with the collection 'Voor wie ik liefheb wil ik heten' (Name me after who I Love). At the time, poetry in the Netherlands was largely a man’s world – and most poets wrote in an experimental style. Min, however, wrote in an understated way, using rhyme, and her theme was family life – particularly its suffocating, claustrophobic aspects.
