Poems for a Century, Various edited by Tope Omoniyi (Amalion Publishing, 2014) CIR18

In this special collection Poems for a Century: An Anthology on Nigeria, edited by Tope Omoniyi, poets from different backgrounds, generations and persuasions explore what it means to be a citizen of Nigeria. Shifting from despair to hope, lamentation to happiness, condemnation to adoration and every gamut of sensibilities imaginable, the contributors reiterate the notion of engagement and the power of the written word to push for social change in their beloved nation. In fifty poems, Nigeria becomes the muse not just to raise questions about its past experiences and present contexts, but also to posit aspirations for a better nation.
