Born in 1968 in The Hague, Erik Lindner is one of the Netherland's most acclaimed poets. Admired for a style that fuses simplicity with strangeness, Lindner builds his poems through a montage of descriptive images that, by fending off closure, generate extraordinary visionary power. Gathering together new work with a selection from his previous six collections, Words are the Worst offers a range of pleasures that have made him celebrated in his home country: an austere eloquence; a hard, unsparing precision; a restless and idiosyncratic eye. Best of all is how his intensely filmic observations transform haunted landscapes of windmills, birds, dogs, and houseboats on canals into, as one critic put it, "Lindner-like" moments. Brilliantly translated by Francis R. Jones, with an introduction by Canadian poet David O'Meara, Words are the Worst introduces a leading Dutch voice to English readers.
