Book Preview


“Mbuh Tennu Mbuh is a social analyst fed by a new humanism; a poet who displays a profound understanding of the human predicament, and who is creatively concerned with the various ways in which the crucial dimensions of people’s lives and destinies are affected by the social structures. His collection of poems, The Oracle of Tears, is a symbolic, enriching and illuminating meditation on the destiny of man. It is carefully thought out and beautifully written. Readers will be impressed by the linguistic energy of the poet.”

Kashim Ibrahim TALA, Professor of Literature,University of Buea, Cameroon

"Mbuh is unapologetic about challenging the reader, but this is a book to read over many days and perhaps weeks. The Oracle of Tears is a book to pick up, put down, and pick up again."
