Death of Hardship

by Ekpe Inyang

Death of Hardship kaleidoscopically unveils human intrigues, predicaments and woes. It brings into sharp focus the most dreaded products of cruel oppression, exploitation, and destruction-the worst forms of human degradation and sufferings. However, it also sheds beams of hope, celebrating optimism in the struggle and eventually opening the curtain to the stage of victory of the oppressed and impoverished under the shameless sky.

Death of Hardship is diversified in the titles of its poems, but unified in the oneness of its voice, its persona, and its themes… There is a single voice in the poems that speaks to children, men, and women from all strata of society on a variety of themes…It is a must-read collection for all and sundry”

Ba’bila Mutia, Dramatist, poet, and lecturer of Literature and Creative Writing , Ecole Normale Supérieur (ENS), Yaounde, Cameroon
