“Poetic Encyclopedia” unravels to a journey of the senses and soul

Sweeping through a vibrant panorama of themes and motifs, wordsmith Adeniyi Festus Adeniji unveils “Poetic Encyclopedia”. This collection of poems cuts across poetic genres and will take readers into a journey of the senses and of the soul.

Adeniji says his work is, “borne out of a need to describe different aspects of human life via the use of poems, thereby making poetry as an acceptable medium of expressing rather intricate and often difficult emotions, moods, situations, circumstances, and events.” Out of his own personal reflections, struggles and observations, Adeniji crafts a compelling anthology richly drawn with emotion and insight. Readers will find a wealth of topics that they can relate to; from profound musings on God, religion and the spiritual nature of man to emotive verisimilitudes that capture the essence of love and romance to historical and cultural recollections that revisit the author’s birthplace of Nigeria.

Compelling and truly one of a kind, Adeniji’s “Poetic Encyclopedia” will take readers deep into a lush landscape that evokes both human passion and reason. With the abundance of themes that it boasts, this book could be a variety of things: a literary adventure, a passage for powerful sentiments, a delicacy for the mind and heart or all three.
