1511, Nov 151536, Sep 25
a New Latin poet of Dutch nationality. Secundus was a prolific writer, and in his short life he produced several books of elegies, epigrams, odes, verse epistles and epithalamia, as well as some prose writings (epistles and itineraria). His most famous work, though, was the Liber Basiorum (Book of Kisses, first complete edition 1541), a short collection consisting of nineteen poems in various metres, in which the poet explores the theme of the kiss. His poems were later set in Dutch translation as madrigals by Cornelis Tijmensz Padbrué (1631).
