Joost van den Vondel (Cologne 1587 - Amsterdam 1679) is seen as

the greatest Dutch writer and poet of the Dutch language.

He writes tragedies, doctrines, praise and denunciations.

Well-known works are: Kinder-lyck, Gijsbrecht van Aemstel, Palamedes and Lucifer.

188 years after his death, Joost van den Vondel receives a statue and a park is named after him.

On Christmas 1982, as a protest, Joost van den Vondel was beheaded by squatters from Vondelstraat 36.

A year later, the restored statue is placed back in the park.
