Biography of Eugene Bosschaerts

Link to genealogyGenealogy

Eugène is a Flemish prose writer, born in Antwerp on 3 February 1901, and died there on 24 July 1965, as the son of Franciscus Joannes and Maria Francisca VAN DEN BERGH.

He worked as a civil servant at the municipal council of Antwerp.
He made a debut as poet and became one of the good-looking psychologists and stylists of his generation with atmospheric stories and some novels.
After two works of poetry, he wrote some suggestive stories about musical motives, eg. Mondscheinsonate (1941). In 1959 he tries to write a prose work of a large size: 'De club der acrobaten' (The club of Acrobats), a city novel with a complicated structure, but in some fragments the narrative style reveals the often sharp-ironic side of the author.

A nice quote of Eugène Bosschaerts:"Wie denkt dat hij denkt, zit soms maar wat te dromen."
(Whom thinks that he thinks, is more often just dreaming.)
