Chant of the Angry by Kabura Zakama - Paperback
In this collection, Kabura Zakama invites you to share in his ambitious attempt at amplifying the chant of the oppressed.
Many poets and critics say that the world is tired of writings which expresses only anger. Such people want writers to offer some hopeful lines rather than just "doomcumenting" injustice and other social ills in anger
chant of the angry is a collection that hopes to sadden you in most places and shock you in some places; there is definitely something in there that may appeal to the reader!
Kabura Zakama's first collection of poems, The Man lived, won the 1999 ANA Poetry Prize. 18 years on, the author has focused on 'anger' poetry to purge his heart of the impotent rage against impunity!
Kabura Zakama is published in several anthologies and other media and he loves to encourage young writers and writing in indigenous languages. He has started to dabble into short story writing. The author is currently the chairman of the Borno state Chapter of the Association of Nigerian Authors (ANA) and a member of the Abuja Literary Society and Abuja Writers Forum.
