Description

Fierce, angry abrasive poems about colonialism, race and the black experience in Britain, interlaced with thoughts on Caravaggio and an extended and gorgeously personal musing on death, this is, at times hard reading. Yomi draws on the Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio the famous Italian painter who was able to smoothly escape from the gallows even after killing a man that insulted his honour and person. Ode, a British Nigerian poet and performer, we step into Yomi’s world – a diaspora of people and places, family and friends, which stretches from Nigeria to Brixton and Dalston in London, UK. i could not recommend this more, i recommend this to even people like me who usually don’t read poetry. What I did not like was how I Jumped on the net galley app and on google because I had to translate some words.

In poems exploring family, survival, generational trauma and the complexities of belonging, Manorism is an examination of the lives of Black British men and boys. I really liked the way Yomi celebrates his Yoruba culture and I felt like he captured British and Nigerian experience in a very interesting way.Publication dates are subject to change (although this is an extremely uncommon occurrence overall). asks what it means to find oneself between worlds- who is, and who isn’t, allowed ti be more than their origins?

exploring the differences of impunity afforded to white and black peoples, and to white and black artists.

I didn't expect to also feel challenged, validated, riled up, soothed, seen and understood to the level that I was.My thanks to NetGalley for making an advance copy available to me so that I might provide an honest and unbiased review. It also sits well alongside Caleb Azumah Nelson's Open Water which opens up a mode through which to articulate the emotional and vulnerable side of Black masculinity that is all too often eroded and erased by cultural stereotypes.
