About this book:

Heilige nuuskierigheid is an impressive investigation into the origin of life, into the development of a diversity of life forms and into the place of creative humans within this great and often mysterious process. With a grand gesture Cloete succeeds, in the face of the effervescent energy of nature and the unfathomable secrets of outer space, in negotiating for the artist not only a rebirth but also a sparkling creative existence.

In his new collection of poetry T.T. Cloete once again speaks to the earth. His interest in evolution and the natural sciences enriches his more philosophical questioning of the role of the believer within an expanding system that makes demands on humankind's ability to process ever-changing realities. With Heilige nuuskierigheid Cloete consolidates his usual exploration of the creative processes in nature and in the arts, but he shows clear signs of greater daring and an ambition to aim for new horizons. The best poems in this collection are of the same high standard as the many highlights that his body of work has produced thus far.
