Frederik van Eeden (1860–1932)

Eeden, Frederik van (ā’den). A Dutch poet; born at Haarlem in 1860; died in 1932. He was unconventionally graphic and original in his figures of speech, and in true poetry had few contemporary equals. The famous ‘Little Johnny’ (1887) is a seemingly simple nature poem conveying profound thought. ‘Don Torrileio’ and other plays had successful stage careers.
