Abstract

Juxtaposition of Him and me - the poet’s role as a hermeneut
In dealing with T.T. Cloete's poem “Van Horn en my” (Jukstaposisie, 1982) a reading strategy is developed to determine the significance of the interplay of texts and the effects on meaning production encoded in the text. A consideration of the intertextual literary context and comparative reading activates participation in the poetic process. What is perceived in Cloete’s poetic strategies in the poem "Van Hom en my” is the signifying of Omnipresence and of dimensionality within the poem’s limited space. Since comparable poetic strategies which signify the same perceptions are traced by exegetes in the source text, these strategies reveal the particular hermeneutic process present in the way the poet employs his intertext.
