- Col. Edwin Jando’s Review of “EUPHORIA OF SOPHISTRY” by Terseer Baki
- Rhythm and Blues in T.S. Baki’s EUPHORIA OF SOPHISTRY: A Review by Andrew Aondosoo Labe
“Terseer Sam Baki’s first offering EUPHORIA OF SOPHISTRY is an impressive step in the right direction, embroidered with loud soothing sounds, and with an incredible attention to the dynamic contrasts between imagination and reality. There are 51 poems in the 62-page anthology presented with an individual struggle for wholeness in a moribund society, and magnified by a rare excellence in tone and tempo.” – Andrew Aondosoo Labe
“In EUPHORIA OF SOPHISTRY, Terseer Sam Baki asks questions, of me, of you, of us, of himself…he probes the rationale behind events in the world he finds himself, presenting his confusions and convictions, fears and doubts, hopes and disappointments in verses that seize the readers’ eyes.” – Kukogho Iruesiri Samson, author of WHAT CAN WORDS DO and I SAID THESE WORDS
“With a tone that is rebellious at injustice and prophetic lyricism that urges us all to forge through the present in order to face tomorrow’s dawn with optimistic euphoria, Terseer Baki has crafted an enduring song for every life and clime.” – Edentu Oroso, Poet & Literary Critic
“…the heart of the poet and the passion with which he tackles his themes is never in doubt…the poet here goes on an adventure of lines to put across his thoughts on many topical themes.” – Su’eddie Vershima Agema, award winning poet & author of HOME EQUALS HOLES: TALES OF AN EXILE.
“EUPHORIA OF SOPHISTRY is a debut volume which projects the passions, loves, desires, weaknesses, fortitudes, strengths, ambitions and hopes of humans in an increasingly sophisticated world.” – Maik Ortserga, Poet, Editor & Literary Critic.
