Summary

In a world that sometimes seems devoid of systematic alternatives, it might be wise to attempt to add some hints to other, less ordinary pathways. With Visions of the Tenth Eye the author makes an effort to provide these hints by critically discussing day-to-day topics, often adding flavour, hyperboles or omissions. Central to the book is the antithesis that can be seen everywhere in life, but of which only one side is often presented. The author makes an attempt to show the other side of the antithesis, from different perspectives concerning ten different themes.

From the book

Occam

Thrust your razor into me
You can teach me what to see
Veil the truth in words so free

Feelings never proved a lie
Hearts will never tell us why
Make me think or pass me by

Read the world in numbers true
Stain the red with perfect blue
Knowing makes the shrouds accrue

Blind my eyes with truth so bright
Welcome me into the light
I will have the saddest sight

About the author

‘Visions of the Tenth Eye’ is Stijn Koenraads’s (1993) second collection of poems. He finds his inspiration in themes that are controversial, forgotten and/or out of the ordinary, and he attempts to approach these topics from uncommon perspectives. Aside from writing poems, Stijn is mainly interested in his academic field of study (political science and ethics) as well as foreign languages.
