    A Gem of a book Very informative book on the Or k style of Yoruba oral poetry of the Orishas which appear in Chapter One Praise to the Orishas The book has 8 chapters of original and very moving poems by the author An excellent read for anyone interested in Or k of the Orishas A very hard book to put down as with every page turn, it leaves you wanting to read At the end of the book there is also an extensive and very informative glossary that is rich in Yoruba culture.Excellent reading
