Songs of the Marketplace

by Niyi Osundare

Winner of the Commonwealth Poetry Prize for 1986. This is the first collection of Niyi Osundare's poetry

It is the expression of a critical awareness in its exploration of the social situation in contemporary Nigeria. In an introduction, Biodun Jeyifo remarks that his distinctive voice is attributable to the fact that his verses confront both poetry of revolution and a revolution of poetry, in terms of forms and techniques. Thirty-five poems are included.
