De profeet naast de afgrond. Over de Christusfiguur in de gedichten van J.A. dèr Mouw

Hester Meuleman


Johan Andreas dèr Mouw (1863-1919) became a poet in his late forties after a long career as a scholar of classic literature and philosophy. After having searched for the meaning of life in the Protestantism of his youth, which he despised later on, and scholarship, he now turned to the Indian notion of brahmanism and displayed it in his poetry.
