Marc Kregting

On his blog, Marc Kregting (b. 1965), introduces himself as follows: ‘Marc Kregting was born, had to go to school at a certain point and that’s how it went on.’ He doesn’t add that he studied Dutch language and literature or worked in domiciliary care. His ‘and that’s how it went on’, emphasises that family and education are moulds which give everyone predictable identities. Meanwhile, he has become one of our most inventive Dutch-language poets and essayists.
