His work is counted among that of the Vijftigers, a literary movement from the 1950s in the Netherlands and Belgium. His prose (novels and stories) has a strong experimental / innovative character, where the boundaries between genres and conventions structure and chronology split apart: dream and reality co-exist, past, present and future blend together; characters have no fixed properties. In this way he tried to articulate the complexity of existence, showing that it is anything but static and straightforward.Polet also wrote plays and children's books and put together anthologies of poetry and science fiction (perhaps the first of their kind in Dutch). He died in Amsterdam at the age of 91 on 18 July 2015. (en)
