Abstract

390 BAERBEL BECKER-CANTARINO. Daniel Heinsius. Boston: Twayne 1978. (= Twayne's World Authors Series. 477). Twayne's World Author Series aims to provide introductions to major authors for the general reader without sacrificing standards of scholarship. Baerbel Becker-Cantarino's study of Daniel Heinsius fully meets those objectives. She introduces perhaps the least well known of the major Renaissance poets in a work which is very readable, well presented and carefully researched. And yet it is more than just a general introduction, as the first book devoted entirely to Heinsius literary works it is at the same time a valuable complement to earlier writings on Heinsius by Paul R. Sellin, 1.H. Meter and Ulrich Bornemann. An introductory chapter on Heinsius' life and the intellectual background of the University of Leiden is followed by two chapters on Heinsius' Dutch poems - the Nederduytsche Poemata and the love emblems. The former naturally receive most attention and are seen not only in their relationship to the work of other Dutch poets but as examples of Heinsius' attempt to break away from French models to create a distinctly national poetry. Their blend of mythology, contemporary background and personal reference is clearly characterized, and Heinsius' wide reading
