Hannah van Binsbergen(Netherlands, 1993)
Hannah van Binsbergen's debut collection Kwaad gesternte (Evil Stars) won both the 2017 VSB Poetry Prize, whose judges called it "an amazing debut collection without a single weak poem", and the Herman de Coninck Award. The poet, who studied philosophy at the University of Amsterdam, does not shrink from big subjects. She often provides a kind of personal investigation of what happens to and around her, and at the same time, she is aware of the fact that the surroundings she contemplates are also observing her.
