Seun is definitely creative and special. His work is the first of its kind that I and reading from a young, 21st century African writer. As an African, I was initially surprised by his style of writing and his choice of words.
His diction can be compared to the likes of Wilfred Owen, and, in a way, the famous Williams Shakespeare.
APPARITION is in a class of its own. It is compelling in a strange way and strange in a compelling way. It opens a whole new perspective to this thing called life.
What I enjoyed the most about it is his word coinages and use of symbolism, in a creative attempt at conveying meanings to his audience.
I must however say this book requires patience (and a dictionary) if it must be understood. I am more likely to recommend it to poets, especially those familiar with traditional poetry.
