HAIKU Rhapsodies (Verses from Ghana)

Haiku as a genre is less known on the Ghanaian literary landscape. Against this background, the publication of Haiku Rhapsodies (verses from Ghana) by Celestine Nudanu is very timely and historic. Haiku Rhapsodies explores a field where no Ghanaian poet has ever published in hard print. Hence Celestine Nudanu’s work distinguishes her as a trailblazer among her contemporaries. And, most notably, Haiku Rhapsodies comes in at the opportune time to answer the world call for Haiku to be added to UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage.

Haiku Rhapsodies is a finely structured book arranged under the following themes; Afriku, Nature, Haiku My Heart, the Divine and Death. Through these themes, Celestine Nudanu succeeds in transporting the reader into her world by creating animated, serene and yet powerful scenes. At the same time, the poet draws the reader into the complex yet fascinating phenomena of what life is all about; Love, Death, Spirituality and Life itself. The beauty lies in her skill of brevity as a haiku poet. She writes with elegance, using few words which like magic are enchanting, leaving the reader exhilarated and wanting more.
