‘FLAMES OF THE FOREST’, in my estimation, is a powerful collection that demands the attention of all who seek not only beauty in poetry, but also the poetry of beauty.
But beyond this, is the undiluted truth it unleashes, damning the consequences.
— Asomwan Adagbonyin, Professor of English (Stylistics) Ambrose Alli University (AAU), Ekpoma, Nigeria
IYEOMOAN serves a portion of his true self in the verses of FLAMES OF THE FOREST’. Within the lines, you’ll see his mind’s dropping, tell-tale signs of a ‘troubled’ African soul seeking answers.
The strength of this collection is not in its form, but rather in its creative disrespect for form which is more than excused by the rich language, simple diction and the validity of the verses therein.
—Kukogho Iruesiri Samson, author of ‘WHAT CAN WORS DO’, journalist poet publisher, CEO WORDS RHYMES & RHYTHM LTD
