In Memoriam of a Modest Shame
In Memoriam of a Modest Shame is a collection that will expectedly raise questions on the idea of poetry, what it should be, and how it should be done. These were the same questions that came to mind as I read through the collection, because the poems proceed in a direction that is radically different from what I have been used to as a poetry reader and writer myself.
Most of the poems are straightforward expressions, and even literal in many places, decrying what is perceivably the numerous troubles and dysfunctions which our immediate society has ever grappled with. In being able to express a clear disapproval of these shades of wrongness that shadow our society, Nnaemeka shows a keen observatory sense and an uninhibited honesty that may well be applauded.
