Lyrics of Reason and Experience

Munyaradzi Mawere

Publication Year: 2013

The poems in this collection dissect and cut across psychological and cultural spaces as the poet reflects on the profundity of his experiences and encounters. The thoughtful reflections provide a snapshot of what it means to live in a world of where difference and sameness are never to be taken for granted. Though written from Africa, the poems transcend the geographical, cultural and emotional landscapes that have inspired the poetís creative genius. The poems reflect a wide gamut of themes such as love, anomy, hope, megalomania, treachery, education, vigilance and other tussles of everyday life. All those who cherish the moral rectitude of peace, culture, faithful questioning and critical thinking will find value in this enticing collection.
