(1934) debuted in 1964 with Zeepost (Sea mail). The collection quickly found its way to a large readership – which Herzberg's poetry continued to do. Herzberg is also a playwright; she wrote Leedvermaak (± Malicious delight), and collaborated with Franz Weisz in de making of Charlotte, the successful film about painter Charlotte Salomon. Her work was awarded many prizes; in 1997 she was awarded the P.C. Hooft Prize for her poetry. In an interview she commented: 'I still don't have the feeling I am a poet. I am who I am, and occasionally I write a poem'. After Zeepost she published several more collections, among which Dagrest (The Remains of the Day) and Bijvangst (Additional catch).
