In these two inspirational essays, Ben Okri returns to the theme of his novel, "Astonishing the Gods". He explores the meaning of language, its unique power to shape und direct our lives, and the special responsibilities that belong to those who make words their weapons. Part rallying cry, part poetry, they suggest an alternative spiritual response to the problems of the present day and urge the case for contemplation and renewal.

----------

Beautiful, enchanting and wise beyond words. A short but great book by a great writer.

Find a more detailed review in my blog (in German only).

This book is part of my "1 year of my life = 1 country = 5 books"-Challenge (2nd book for Nigeria).

I will send this book to a friend of mine, who is a journalist and writer.
