ABSTRACT
The article presents a biography of Belgian poet Anne-Marie Derèse. Derèse's poetic career began "at last, again, and forever," as she puts it, when, in 1977, she met poet Andrée Sodenkamp who was to become her dear friend and mentor. From then on, as Derèse affirms, "My writing thrived like a plant suddenly freed from its earthen prison." Derèse has received five literary awards for her poetry, both in France and in Belgium. Several of her poems have been translated into German and English.
