Songs of Myself Quartet Summary:

Songs of Myself: Quartet is deeply rooted in the indigenous African poetic tradition. The great udje poets first composed songs paying tribute to the god of songs, followed by songs of self-exhortation,and then songs mocking themselves before satirizing others. This collection incorporates some of these aspects of the oral poetic genre in its four-part structure. It deals with self-examination and the minstrel’s alter-ego as a way of attempting to know himself. So, there is self-mockery that justifies mocking others. The four parts of the collection are: “Pulling the Thread of the Loom,” “Songs of Myself,” “Songs of the Homeland Warrior,” and “Secret Love and Other Poems.”

Spells of Solemn Songs Summary:

Spells of Solemn Songs is a collection of poems that raises strident voices of confrontation against the bastardisation of the space on political, economic, religious and foreign fronts as well as condemns without fear the lacklustre attitudes of some apathetic figures. It further redirects minds to some ideal African ethos and humane values that engender communal and social well-being and oneness. Carved in a language so mellifluous and so unreservedly resolute, its matchless rhythimic cadence enhances easy reading, flow and comprehension while critically challenging the readers’ perception of the world around.

Birthcry Summary:

With unspeakable tenderness and palpable trepidation, Nigerian poet Obi Nwakanma captures the universal experience of childbirth. From his earlier collection The Horsemen and Other Poems, Nwakanma has become a “sojourner from a tangled past traveling to an uncertain future”, trying to root, shape and steel his unborn child to a world filled with graphic horror and indescribable wonder. Along the way he meets his muse, the sixteenth century mystical Indian poet Mirabai, and recites Elizabeth Bishop over tea. Thematically, Bithcry is intimate, lyrical and unrestrained while retaining a measured, coherent and precise form.
