Description - Selected Poems by Wole Soyinda

This volume contains poems from 1966 to 1989. "A Shuttle in the Crypt", written while Soyinka was in prison, maps out the course trodden by a mind under solitary confinement. "Idanre", a poem on the creation myth of Ogun, was written for the Commonwealth Arts Festival, while "Mandela's Earth" presents a selection of poems that are of searing urgency.
