Willem Bilderdijk lived here

Willem Bilderdijk lived here
Bilderdijk was a Dutch poet and writer. He was a political conservative. He had a small but dedicated following during his life, after his death his popularity increased. I think that few people read him nowadays. He lived in Leiden, and this plaque can be found on the last house he lived in before he moved to Haarlem. He lived from 1756 to 1831. See this picture for the unveiling of the plaque on March 26, 1938.
