From Amu Nnadi, 'The Love Canticles' an anthology of extraordinary craft, charm and genius. - Onyeka Nwelue (Author of The Lagos Cuban Jazz Club)

The Love Canticles is an alchemical phenomenon; a project which attempts to achieve a purity of vision of life's richness, by seeing it through a vantage of love and the point of view it affords. Through this masterful work, amu nnadi demonstrates what the poet, W.S Merwin meant when he once said, "Poetry is seeing the world with fresh eyes." The piet portrays familiar experiences, rendered in fresh language, a thought he sees things anew, aided by a eureka moment of gaiety, and of loneliness, sadness and love.

From 'a river's journey' to 'a field of echoes' and currently, 'the love canticles', amu nnadi has begun, and completed, the vision of a trilogy: three collections of poetry which expand our perception of life through the purifying lens of love. This has birthed a body of work that explor+es a theme not commonly found in the continental scene, with a dexterity to be admired at any level poetry has ever been written.

The carefulness of amu nnadi's craft, the vividness of his vision, the embodiment and range of his metaphors as well as the acuity of his imageries are a reflection and characteristic of a gifted poet whose art has passed through the alchemical crucible of long-suffering and devotion over the decades. - Michael Chiedoziem Chukwudera (Poet and Literaty Critic)
