  STATUE IN HONOUR OF WRITER BREDERO
by ATLC
 
 

Gerbrand Adriaenszoon Bredero was a Dutch writer who lived 1585-1618.

Dutch dramatist and poet. He is considered the major Dutch poet of his generation, particularly for his spontaneous love sonnets. The first Dutch master of comedy, Bredero was an important innovator; he drew upon classical elements as well as Renaissance models. His masterpiece, De Spaansche Brabander (1617, tr. The Spanish Brabanter, 1982), is a realistic comedy of Amsterdam life and reveals the influence of Spanish romanticism. Bredero's work was collected in three volumes in 1890.
