Miriam Van hee

Miriam Van hee is one of the best known Flemish poets writing today, with numerous major awards to her name. Her poetry is known for its quiet power and simplicity of language, the kind of simplicity that is hard won. Van hee frequently gives readings at international poetry festivals and her work has been widely translated. She also teaches Russian at the Interpreters’ Academy in Antwerp and is a prolific translator of Russian poetry.

“Van hee writes poems with a combination of clarity and enigma. Don’t be deceived by their reticent small scale. They hold images in exact focus before the eye with delicate and economic power that extends their dimensions in the mind and the feelings of the reader.”
