A Dutch poet (1485-1550); born at Pamele (Oudenarde). He was the acknowledged lawgiver and pattern of all the Dutch rhetoricians of his time, in his "Art of Rhetoric". He composed many plays, but only two of them were published: one of these is the "Story of Pyramus and Thisbe". He wrote also "Ballads" and a volume of "Various Lays", in melodious verse.
