ABSTRACT
This article profiles Belgian poet Andrée Sodenkamp. She began writing when she was very young, and she recounts with humor her grandmother's unsuccessful attempts to discourage her from writing verse instead of her school assignments. Sodenkamp's early poetry is written in classical alexandrine verse, a form perfectly in keeping with her sometimes nostalgic, sometimes ironic, depiction of times gone by and clandestine loves. Sodenkamp has enjoyed a distinguished literary career.
