About the Book

Having been pushed to a cliff where thousands have fatally fallen under the bullets of BIR soldiers in particular and having been trapped in a genocide calculated to wipe them off like rats, in the words of a dictator, a subjugated people get back on their feet, determined, more than ever, not to yield to the servitude imposed by a neighboring country of equal status. Against the backdrop of agony over departed loved ones who have fought a good fight of resistance and those who must continue to do so for posterity, some of the poems also muse about familiar human struggles and other aspects of human nature and life in general. Consistent with the author’s previous books of poetry, Angle of Angels by Felix Bongjoh has tried to pay attention to both form and substance, always giving preference across his poems to criteria of literary merit, including metaphor and symmetry. The poems, most of which are written in free verse, are both accessible and absorbing.
