Peter Akinlabi’s A Pagan Place Reviewed at Saraba
Saraba Magazine recently reviewed APBF Poet Peter Akinlabi’s A Pagan Place, calling him a “ventriloquist of memory” and equating the experience to “eavesdropping on Mount Olympus”. Reviewer Tunji Olalere found much to enjoy in the collection, finding a “cryptic allure” to the poems in their discussion of time, immortality and geography, and invoking religious imagery in an attempt to summarize the book.
“Fifteen poems like unleavened bread sprawl across the pages, awaiting communion with any reader who might prefer silence to noise, the earth to the sky, poignancy to catharsis.”
