Albrecht Rodenbach (Dutch pronunciation:  ['lbrçt 'rodmbx] ; 27 October 1856 - 23 June 1880) was a Flemish poet, and a leader in the revival of Flemish literature that occurred in the late 19th Century. He is more noteworthy as a symbol of the Flemish movement, than for his actual activities, since he died at the age of 23. Hugo Verriest called Rodenbach the poet, the soul, the heart, the mind, the word of Reborn Flanders!.
