About

The Poetry into Prose posts are written by Dutch students aged 15-17 for a school project. They choose either to be anonymous or named. The project entails turning a Romantic or Victorian poem into a prose text. This could be any text from a letter to a recipe, a diary entry to a presidential speech. Students are free to pick a poem to their liking and are encouraged to use poetical language and devices, as long as it is a prose text in general and keeps the same meaning as the poem.
