With his innate love for poetry, Wandile Ganya shares to readers his collection of poems in “A Dark Wood: Poetical Sketches on Life & Being in the World” (published by AuthorHouse UK). The book deals with philosophico-political issues and gives due attention to the perennial question of “Africanness” and postcolonial situation of Africa.
According to Ganya, “A Dark Wood” is a work articulating in poetic form a modern human experience of being in the world. Furthermore, the poems appear to emerge from a tautness between a self-seeking authenticity and social “identarian normativity.” Hence, naturally, the thematic fabric of this work is unveiled as a craft interwoven in often counterposed, fragmentary ideas on meaning and meaninglessness, essence and nothingness, sanity and absurdity, pain and relief, life and death, love and liberty, or loneliness and so on.
An excerpt from the poem “On Existence:”
Like blind fisherman journeying in the ocean seas, we trawl through life’s inner sanctum—
a universe so immense—
groping for meaning in things,
but finding much travesty.
And everywhere, we are ensnared,
ever in infinite absurdities.
