About the Book

“…He was not only the finest poet of his generation but I believe that as his work becomes better and more widely known in the world he will also be recognised as one of the most remarkable anywhere in our time…”

- Chinua Achebe

 "I am an Okigbo evangelist... Christopher Okigbo is a great poet whose lines everybody should know by heart. They are tremendously beautiful."

- Ben Okri

Celebrated writer and winner of the Booker Prize for Fiction.

 "Steeped alike in Western Modernist aesthetics and myth -making traditions of his Igbo background, he fused worlds with an assurance that married lyric and epic, audacity and grace. This collection… will remind existing readers of Okigbo's prowess and dazzle new ones."

- Boyd Tonkin

Literary editor of The Independent and former judge of the Booker Prize, and Commonwealth Prize.
