Garland of Rhyme Round and Round the Year

In Rijmsnoer, Gezelle brought together the best of his late poetic bloom. The collection was published as the sixth part of his Collected Poetic Works (1892-1897). It consists of impressionistic natural poetry, arranged according to the months of the year. He uses a masterful language, ripened throughout many years of language research. Furthermore, the form is varied and virtuoso. It establishes him as a predecessor of modern poets such as Van Ostaijen and the experimental Fifties Movement. After his death, Gezelle received the quinquennial Prize for Dutch Literature. The same collection is also part of the Canon of Flemish literature.
