The collection seeks to portray themes interwoven in each poem, that bear particular significance to the human experience.
Its focus on man’s relations with his fellow-men, nature and his relation with himself runs over the collection in multiple dimensions and it intends to take a less radical stand on these subjects but attempts to reveal them in a perspective of multiple fiction subjects employed in some of the poems.
The tenor of the collection appreciates man and revolves around the facets of his encounters and how his presence has affected much of what is around him.
Altogether, the collection seeks to take a deeper view on most of the subjects discussed and to do so with reference to the hearts, bodies, minds and souls of men with which they influence everything around them and are influenced likewise by the world around them. It carries a refined delicate undertone throughout to paint such pictures as to evoke genuine understanding of the messages being communicated.
Tales of an African child is a dramatic and moving tale of Useh. A lad who is a victim of a broken home. Born with a silver spoon in his mouth, he ends up as a street urchin and rogue.
His quest for survival portrays the true spirit and penchant of the deprived African child who is determined to succeed against all odds.
As an orphan, Useh suffers painful neglects from his extended family, but there is light at the end of the tunnel for him as he battles it out on the cold street of despair and wanton neglect.
The book is an enchanting piece. It is a short tale laced with suspense and makes for a good and interesting read.
