Heart Sounds: Poems

Front Cover
Kraftgriots, 2003 - Poetry - 100 pages
0 Reviews
A collection of poems as meditations on subjects as diverse as tradition, the poetry's artistic relationship with Ted Hughes, Ken Saro Wiwa, the ancestors, strikes, black-white children, the 'real world' versus the world of poetic creation, Lagos and Abuja. In common, the poems have the interests of Africa at heart. They are told with a sardonic wit, and express a basic faith in the power of creative expression. Adebayo Lamikanra is the author of A Round Half-Dozen (Kraft 2002), a collection of short stories.
