15591635
a Dutch Golden Age writer and historian. His portrait was painted by Frans Hals in 1634, and it was engraved for his book in 1637. Although he is not registered as a member of a Chamber of Rhetoric, he wrote a few plays that were published in 1617. This stapelspel is based on the same story as Shakespeare's Pericles, Prince of Tyre. This work, which occupied him for 25 years (according to the introduction), was never finished in rhyme, necessary for performances in those days. He is best known for the historical work he wrote during his years traveling through various cities
