Waiting Laughters

by Niyi Osundare

Waiting Laughters is Osundare's second volume of poetry, published to critical acclaim. In 1991, it won The Noma Award for Publishing in Africa, the most prestigious book prize for new works published within the African continent.

The collection is conceived as a poetic response to the gloom and despair gripping contemporary African society: the poems emphasise the possibility of laughter and its diverse manifestations. The style of the poetry is reflective of oral and Yoruba literary traditions.
