Abstract: 

Christopher Okigbo's words have often been described as prophetic and have inspired generations of writers in Nigeria and beyond. This extraordinary and powerful collection of interlinked poems, first published in 1971, showcases his rare talent. Each poem draws the reader into an arresting world of myth and intense contemplation. Killed during the Biafran conflict aged only 35, Okigbo says of these sequences that they amount to "a fable of man's perennial quest for fulfilment".
