Émile Verhaeren. The Only National Poet Belgium Has Ever Had
(Luc Devoldere) THE LOW COUNTRIES - 2016, № 24, PP. 291-294
If someone were to be nominated as the greatest Belgian of all time, it would surely have to be Emile Verhaeren (1855-1916). He was a man who wrote in French but who was regarded as a Fleming; and who died in the First World War as a staunch defender of gallant little Belgium.
