If the name of Herman Gorter is still familiar to anyone outside the Low Countries, it is more likely to be as a revolutionary propagandist and an opponent of Lenin's strategy at the Third International in 1920,1 than as the most gifted Dutch poet of his age. At home he tends to be pigeonholed as the author of the poem Mei (May, 1889), the anthem of the Generation of 1880, while his other, particularly his Socialist, verse is largely neglected.
Gorter's father Simon, a minister in the non-conformist Mennonite church, which advocated adult baptism, social involvement and pacifism, was himself a talented journalist and writer. His death from tuberculosis in 1881 left Herman and his brother and sister in the care of a devoted and dominant mother, who moved her family from the rural surroundings of Zaandam to Amsterdam.
