Marije Langelaar is a Dutch poet. Her second collection, De schuur in (Into the Shed, 2009) won the biennial Hugues C. Pernath Prize and nominations for the Jo Peters Poetry Prize and J.C. Bloem Prize. Her latest collection Vonkt (It Sparks) won the 2017 Jan Campert Prize, the Awater Poetry Prize and a nomination for the 2018 VSB Poetry Prize. Langelaar gives expression to the natural forces between people and between people and their environment – exchanges that are far from idyllic. In her vital, sometimes surrealist poems, a fairytale quality verges on grimness as she navigates through the miraculous and the doubtful.
