Klara had been interested in the art of poetry from an early age, inspiring Dordrecht poet Jakob Targier, with whom she built a valuable friendship. In 1734, she married Johannes Badon and they settled in Vlaardingen. They shared their love for poetry and wrote a great deal during their married years. Nine years after Klara's death, Badon published this bundle. Badon, who was mayor of Vlaardingen, by then had been married to Maartje van der Most for six years. The bundle opens with Klara's poems, none of which are unfortunately dated. One of the first is 'Reis naar Engeland', according to Annalies de Jeu the first Dutch travel poem by a woman. L0838
