Johannes Petrus Hasebroek (1812–1896)

Hasebroek, Johannes Petrus (häs’ė-brök). A Dutch poet, preacher, and prose-writer; born in Leyden, Nov. 6, 1812; died in 1896. His collected ‘Poems,’ and two volumes entitled ‘Vesper’ and ‘Hesperides,’ respectively, reveal him a pleasing maker of verse; but his best-known work is a collection of droll poems called ‘Jonathan’s Truth and Dreams.’ His sermons have been widely circulated in book form.
