Season of Shadows

by John Ngong Kum Ngong

“In this wide-ranging collection of forty-three poems, John Ngong Kum Ngong undertakes a critical and acerbic diagnosis of the socio-political situation in postcolonial Africa through a deceptively simple, aesthetically complex, and ideologically intriguing style. The multi-facetted and interrelated motifs of ‘shadows’ and ‘seasons’,  together with a plethora of literary devices such as paradox, suspense, metaphors, allusions, personification, irony, satire, humour, and contrast, are the weapons through which the poet drives home his message. The poems, in this collection, are not only politically ‘correct’ but are also artistically profound.” - Zuhmboshi Eric Nsuh, PhD. Lecturer, Literary Critic, and Political Analyst
