The phenomenology of T.T. Cloete
This article is an exploration of the way phenomena are treated in the poetry of T.T. Cloete. Four important aspects of Cloete's way of looking are discussed, viz. the collecting eye that connects everything with everything, the eye that discovers correspondences, the deological eye that reads signs of God’s presence, and the reflecting eye. A critique of reflection is developed by means of a more detailed analysis of “Blydskap” (Joy). These four ways of seeing indicate links between Cloete's poetry and Husserl’s Phenomenology.
