“Tanure Ojaide ranges widely in scope, from ancient Urhobo rites and mythology to the dichotomies of modern consumerism. To Those Who Love Me is a testimony of principled, artistic independence. This is a significant collection by one of Africa’s most prominent poets.”

-Hein Willemse, veteran scholar, writer, and Professor, University of Pretoria, South Africa

“To Those Who Love Me repurposes the famous mythical method, creating a continuous parallel between contemporaneity and antiquity. Yet the poetry of Tanure Ojaide does more with both space and time. Not only does he create a continuous parallel between his African homeland and wherever he finds himself, but he creates a constant poetic rhythm between timeless diction and timely concerns. Like most poets, he writes for as well as To Those Who Love Me -‘women… men… nonhuman/and other beings I can’t even describe.And yet this poet’s consummate lyricism intimates the rare and deep poetic experience that they love him back for his labours.”

-Charles Cantalupo, Distinguished Professor of English, Comparative Literature, and African Studies, Penn State University, USA.

“To Those Who Love Me is a powerful testament of a seasoned poet’s mental and physical experiences on private, personal, public, and political tensions- a truly wonderful collection.”

-Chike Okoye, Professor, Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka, Nigeria
