Gorter's masterpiece May is a landmark of Dutch literature. This thoughtful, lyrical translation will invite consideration of what makes the heart sing, even if the joy, like May, is only temporary.

May describes the magical journey of adolescence against
the background of Holland’s flowery dunescapes. In brush strokes of wonder-filled impressions a stunningly unspoiled girl, May, explores the promise of springtime and the intense spiritual life of youth. However, the cycle of life always moves on, and as May matures and returns to earth, she finds it readying for summer.

When Herman Gorter published May (Mei) in 1889, this spontaneous and vibrant epic poem was immediately recognized
by his peers as a landmark of Dutch literature. Inspired in part by John Keats' Endymion (1818), May was perhaps an inevitable product of the artistically revolutionary and highly lucid spirit in The Netherlands of the 1880s. While Gorter’s contemporary, Vincent van Gogh, had just completed the groundbreaking Sunflowers series of paintings, Gorter succeeded with May in composing his own monument of colourful and innovative power.

'A gripping story... breathlessly onward through magnificent word groups... full of surprising turns of phrase... before you know it, you'll be reading it out loud!' - Lloyd Haft, poet

'This thoughtful, lyrical translation will stir the imagination and invite consideration of what makes the heart sing, even if the joy, like May, is only temporary. The poem, though, will endure.'
