N.P. van Wyk Louw
N.P. van Wyk Louw (1906-1970) wrote his first poems when still a student. Later he went on to also write tragedies and prose. From 1950 to 1958 he was Professor of South African language, literature, culture and history at the University of Amsterdam. Van Wyk Louw was devoted to strengthening the relations between the Dutch language and Afrikaans, which he felt provided Dutch speakers with a unique ‘window into Africa’.
