About this book


"One of the most eloquent, passionate and imaginative collection of poems I have read in a while. An all encompassing and thought provoking collection, the sort of dose we need at times like this. A reminder that the artist is still the sensitive point of the society" - Odachi Elizabeth Onogwu, Literary Scholar and critic “Su’eddie’s poetry is full of silence; of words/sounds that combine with silence to create a dense accretion of images...: it creates a gyre which widens and widens until it covers the entire surface of the pond” – Hyginus Ekwuazi, Multiple award winning poet and literary critic “Bring our Casket Home is one of the most powerful evocations on the deep things of life I have read in recent times. It is a work of poetry conceived and written in the form of meditations. It makes one realize how man, in his quest for survival often neglects the value of meditation. An exploration of this debut collection of poems, woven in delightful images is bound to take into cognisance certain events, joyful or sorrowful in the poet’s life.” - Maik Ortserga, critic and literary administrator. “Su’eddie’s poems like songs serenade the core of anguish and at the same time tease the ease of our most mellow moments. With the poise of a minstrel Su’eddie draws us into the strings of his messages with rhythms that transcend caskets and losses. His is a rare talent” - Unoma Azuah, Multiple award winning writer and scholar. Noticed an error in this book? Send a mail to flag@okadabooks.com to report it
