Litany of a Foreign Wife


by Nnane Ntube

Litany of a Foreign Wife, Nnane Ntube’s beautifully crafted debut collection of poetry projects images of a society marked by instability, feelings of homelessness, disorientation, oppression and neglect. Through her storytelling style of poetry, she interrogates humanity’s existence in a context where life’s meanings are gradually fading and absurdities are becoming the order of the day. The poems are adorned with the faculties of sight, smell, hearing, taste and touch which trigger fear, insecurity, frustration, complaints and escape, thus provoking the longing for hope, home, love and peace.
