A Troubadour's Thread

Sanya Osha

Publication Year: 2013

This volume powerfully conveys the pilgrimage of a singular spirit through adversity, equanimity, immanence and eventually, transcendence. It grapples with a range of emotions, topics and sensations. Christopher Okigbo achieved similar results but in an entirely different manner. Okigboís vision is epical in its dimensions while Oshaís work is infused with a sustained lyricism, mutedness or even more appropriately, quietude. Oshaís poetry unveils a multi-layered journey from artistic infancy to complete aesthetic maturity. Most of this journey dwells upon the poetís inner states in which vast geographical vistas are revealed.
