A look in to the legendary literary glimmer of Achebes well disected pieces of poetry will convince anyone of its pure originality and the wealth of expressive abundance that caresses each line, from a person with nothing less than the perfect mastery of his act and art. The work, a woman in a refugee camp is a most read for every African, it is a well written piece painted with the right colours of a then distressed country/nation and the fight of a woman for hope and fate. There is always a lesson to be learnt, a knowledge to be brewed and a stark of experience to be equally felt as one perouz through the lines of this masterpieces. Much is to be said on these works, but am afraid they speak for themselves already.
