A major voice in The Netherlands, Ten Berge has won many prizes and distinctions, including the prestigious P.C. Hooft Award (2006), the jury celebrating that he “has opened Dutch poetry to worlds that until then had gone unnoticed.” His poetry is nourished and influenced not only by the contemporary world, but also by the European Middle Ages and earlier civilizations.
