Nachoem M. Wijnberg

Nachoem M. Wijnberg

(The Netherlands, 1961)

"If you can read a newspaper article, you can read my poetry."

With seventeen collections to his name, Nachoem Wijnberg is undoubtedly one of the most prolific Dutch poets. Though he might have a reputation as a 'difficult' poet, he disputes this: "If you can read a newspaper article, you can read my poetry." And although his poetry indeed is often simple and accessible, Wijnberg, who is also a professor of Cultural Entrepreneurship and Management, often tackles large and complex themes. His monumental collection Van groot belang (2015), for instance, references economic and political theories to address key issues in contemporary society. For his entire poetic oeuvre, Wijnberg was awarded the prestigious P.C. Hooft Prize in 2017.
