Prudens van Duyse (1804–1859)

Van Duyse, Prudens (doi’ze). A Flemish poet (1804–59); born at Dendermonde. He was a very prolific author, and wrote poems of every kind,—epic, lyric, dramatic. They are all mediocre, but served to reawaken a love of the Flemish tongue. He wrote many valuable works on Flemish history.
