Biographical information
Active in
  • Amsterdam (stad) 1662 - 1664
    He contributed to the poetry collection 'de Parnassus aan 't IJ' (1663) written by the circle around Jan Soet. This didn't stop him for having acrimonious and little uplifting rants with this group, which found its reflexion in hateful grave poems by Jan Soet (Uitsteekenste Digtkunstige Werkken, Amsterdam 1675). The violence of these fights was also in contrast with his mennonite beliefs. His play 'treur-blyeindend Spel’ Grooten Robbert was performed in the Amsterdam Schouwburg (1672).
