Born Apr. 15, 1875, in Amsterdam; died Dec. 26, 1966, in Utrecht. Dutch writer.

Boudier-Bakker’s first collection of stories was Powers (1902). The novels Poverty (1909), The Little Mirror (1917), The Street (1924), and A Knock at the Door (1930) portray the spiritual impoverishment of the Dutch bourgeoisie. Boudier-Bakker wrote the novel Finale (1937); the plays The Promised Land (1903), A Higher Law (1906), and The Flood (1926); the collections of stories Children (1905) and Paul (1936); and the poetry collection Attention! (1946), which was written during the Hitlerite occupation. The novel Gold From Straw (1949) describes the life of the Dutch bourgeoisie in the 19th century.
