Death of Hardship

Thursday 7 June 2012, author(s)-editor(s) Ekpe Inyang

Death of Hardship kaleidoscopically unveils human intrigues, predicaments and woes. It brings into sharp focus the most dreaded products of cruel oppression, exploitation, and destruction-the worst forms of human degradation and sufferings. However, it also sheds beams of hope, celebrating optimism in the struggle and eventually opening the curtain to the stage of victory of the oppressed and impoverished under the shameless sky.

    Death of Hardship is diversified in the titles of its poems, but unified in the oneness of its voice, its persona, and its themes… There is a single voice in the poems that speaks to children, men, and women from all strata of society on a variety of themes…It is a must-read collection for all and sundry

      A wonderful collection by Epke! Dr Babila’s description of the work is marvel as well and I am convinced that Epke’s poetry also laments the degradation of the environment alongside the perment misery in which we have been left for so lng now: financial poverty, politico-economic poverty. Otherwise, have we forgotten Epke’s strong attachment to his environmental vocation?
