“To the reader, what we have tried to do above [all] is to give a foretaste of the sumptuous banquet the author has prepared for us. We have not done justice to it remembering that the taste of the pudding is in the eating, no reviews, no forewords, no introductions or prefaces can replace your actual reading and enjoying of these well written poems.”

Chief Samson. N. Abangma, Registrar / Professor of Linguistics & English Language, University of Buea
