ABSTRACT
This article profiles Belgian poet Marie Gevers. Among novelists of the first half of the 20th century, she achieved celebrity for her foresighted portrayal of woman's role in society. An early grande dame of Belgian literature, often referred to as the Colette of the North, she published her first of many novels in 1931. Her poetry is direct and simple in form and autobiographical in content.
