An African Elegy


“Dreams are the currency of Okri’s writing, particularly in this first book of poems…Okri’s dreams are made on the stuff of Africa’s colossal economic and political problems, and reading the poems is to experience a constant succession of metaphors of resolution in both senses of the word. Virtually every poem contains an exhortation to climb out of the African miasma, and virtually every poem harvests the dream of itself with an upbeat restorative ending.” —Times Literary Supplement
