About The Book
Christopher Ifekandu Okigbo (1930 — 1967) was a Nigerian poet, who died fighting for the independence of Biafra. He is today widely acknowledged as the outstanding postcolonial English-language African poet and one of the major modernist writers of the twentieth century.
“Elegy for Alto”, the final poem in ‘Path of Thunder’, is today widely read as the poet’s “last testament” embodying a prophecy of his own death as a sacrificial lamb for human freedom:
Earth, unbind me; let me be the prodigal; let this be
the ram’s ultimate prayer to the tether . . .
AN OLD STAR departs, leaves us here on the shore
Gazing heavenward for a new star approaching;
The new star appears, foreshadows its going
Before a going and coming that goes on forever…
