Abstract

‘hy maak die kafhok groen’ - notes on T.T. Cloete as an ecologist in rhyme
In his six volumes of poetry published up to now, T.T. Cloete reveals himself as an ecologist in rhyme. His investigation into the existence of man as part of a cosmological eco-system is founded in the belief that God created and still watches over a structured and interdependent universe. The poet employs the paradox and the technique of enumeration, and integrates ordinary and highly scientific language in poems which are deceptively simple as far as formal structure is concerned.
