I am a learner of the Dutch language and my interest in literature has led me to poetry in the Netherlands. I wish to find a single-volume poetry anthology of the Netherlands (or plus Flemish region) in the original texts, similar to the Norton Anthology they have in the English language. The book should include poems/verses by poets from various historical periods & schools of literature, preferably with sufficient explanatory notes for lay readers. And it also has to be commercially available at present; it would be great if it could be purchased online. Either paperback or hardcover is okay. Anyone have recommendations?

hey nomadwa. The classical anthology is by Komrij, which has appeared in a number of editions. Currently available on is ' De Nederlandse Poezie in Duizend en Enige Gedichten': link; that's for the 19th and the 20th century; there's also an edition starting in the 12th century (3 vols) which is slightly more expensive. Check here.

These editions don't include any comments or clarification, though, just the poetry. I'm not aware of any comprehensive anthology for Dutch poetry that also includes commentary.

With maybe the exception of the unasked there just isn't such thing available as a dumb question - Z4us
