Nicolaas Beets

Beets, Nicolaas (nēˈkōläs bāts) [key], 1814–1903, Dutch author. He translated Byron into Dutch and was fairly well known as a poet when his Camera Obscura (1839), published under the pseudonym Hildebrand, won great popularity. This series of nostalgic sketches of everyday life reflected Beets's wide powers of observation.
