Peter Holvoet-Hanssen saw the light, as a new-born babe
that is, on that fine day of 12th April 1960 in the Antwerp
suburb of Merksem and still lives there. He is a performer
at heart, one who, sword in hand, recites his poetry mostly
from memory, sometimes accompanied by a violinist and
double bassplayer. In 1998 his poetry volume Dwangbuis
van Houdini (Houdini's Straightjacket; Prometheus,
Amsterdam, 1998) appeared, followed by Strombolicchio
- uit de smidse van Vulcanus (
- from the smithy
of Volcanus; Prometheus, 1999). In the spring of 2001
Santander - ontboezemingen in het vossenvel (
in fox fur; Prometheus) was published, from which
the poem 'Solferino'(on the Dutch part of this site) is
His novella De vliegende monnik (The flying
monk) is set to appear early 2004.
