Topic: AFRICAN POETRY, CYCLONE- by OBU UDEOZO.
Posted: Oct. 14 2005,08:40 by abdullahi from Nigeria -

CYCLONE is an anthology of poems that interrogates the frontiers of particle physics in order to lend full play to experiences in our current material and noumenal world.
It evidences the limits of inventiveness via technique  to showcase the condition of the Nigeria nation in all ramifications of her national life, by touching upon several themes  like Carthasis: for Igbos,  My Western Rib, Colonel Adekunle Fajuyi, Major General J.T.U. Aguiyi Ironsi, National Anthem, Ambassador, Throat - in terms of its political turf. Its claim to global significance is again met in the discourse of topics like Ichi:for Cindy Crawford, Thunder :for Marion Jones,  Nelson MANDELA, Michael Jordan, Ikenga:for Philip Emeagwali, Ugulu Ifite:for Wole Soyinka, Sharks, Amuma, and Udala:for Obu Udeozo. The SUN stated recently that " Obu Udeozo's Cyclone and Compassion treat almost every subject under the sun". The works of this poet have been reviewed with wide acclaim in almost every Nigeria and International media and are generating a plethora of scholar Dissertations across the Universities in the Nigeria nation.

However, the lasting import of this work is that it has explored the techniques of literature from the fields of science, painting, philosophy as a sociology of knowledge for the 21st century global civilisation in a way no other text has done in the last 2000 years of human experience.
