As long as the tree blooms A Short History of Frisian Literature
A Short History of Frisian Literature
Frisian literature is an expression of the soul of Fryslân. For centuries Frisian writers and poets have written in their own language: about themselves, about their language and about their country. Frisian literature has many unexpected treasures that are certainly worth discovering and As Long as the Tree Blooms is a good place to start. Literary academic Joke Corporaal describes the most significant developments and characteristics of Frisian literature in seven chapters. Subsequently, striking examples of the high points and low points in this history are briefly explained in ‘framed texts’.
