Emile Verhaeren (1855-1916) is arguably the most important Belgian poet in the French language. Born and educated in Flanders, he settled into the literary community of Brussels and soon became a pivotal link with the Symbolist movement in Paris, finally moving there in 1898. A national treasure, and symbol of defiance against German aggression, he died in a tragic accident in Rouen in 1916.
