dc.description.abstract The writing of this thesis has been stimulated by the clear understanding of the poet’s resources are vitally important for those who intend to train others in Poetry Creative Writing. We suppose we think euphemistically that all creative writers write because they have something to say that is truthful and honest and pointed and important. This thesis is informed by creative voices of L.S. Booysen; C.L.J. Mophethe; N.S. Litabe and P.T.P.K. Maboea. During the interview each one of them was asked questions based on creativity and art as well as questions based on their poetry. Chapter one introduces the study and looks at the key concepts. Chapter two is the literary framework and focuses on the deconstructional approach and multiplicity of meaning in poetry. Chapter three looks at the creativity and art in the poetry of L.S. Booysen; C.L.J. Mophethe; N.S. Litabe and P.T.P.K. Maboea. In chapter four we discuss style in relation to Litabe. Chapter five looks at theme in Maboea’s poetry. In chapter six we focus on intertextuality in relation to Booysen and influence in relation to Mophethe. Chapter seven is a concluding statement that looks back into the first six chapters and also gives suggestions for future research. Our review of this thesis on creative writing has identified a number of factors that seem to foster people to write. But no one can influence people to become creative writers or poets or make them write well. The best one can do is to suggest to them some guidelines for creative writing. (vii) Many people wish to be proficient in poetry creative writing but to achieve this, one should be able to breathe into his work the true poetic spirit that pulses in the composition. This life cannot be created to order because it flows from the mind and soul of the poet and always without his being aware of what is happening, inspires and directs his art. Poetry is also a language that has been condensed, compacted, and trimmed to spark the lightning flash of insight. Poets are more attuned to the connection between language and things, existence and experience. Words have the capacity for poets to change reality, to deepen it, to make it more meaningful. For poets composition is a form of ritual magic. en
