BRIEF NOTE ABOUT THE BOOK (From the Blurb)
… Ordinarily, the union of the sexes,whetherin affection or hostility, is a vast pool which creative artists from ancient times to the present have drawn inspirations for their thematic concerns and style. Thus, a new work in this direction stands the risk of treading the familiar path without making much impression. What subtly but eloquently stands out in Kayode Taiwo Olla’sSoftlie, is its uncommon blend of the poetic with the narrative, and the melodic with the dramatic… The reader’s attention is firmly held and sustained from the beginning to the end of the collection through irony, pun, suspense and ellipsis.
…Softlie is therefore a richly endowed collection of poems that I find enticing with every reading and it is self-recommending.
