ECO-CRITICAL LITERATURE: Regreening African Landscapes
Critically examines the representations, contructions, and imaginings of the relationship
between the human and non-human worlds in contemporary African literature and culture.
It offers innovative, incisive, and critical perspectives on the importance of sustaining
a symbiotic relationship between humans and their environment..
Love Gift Poems
Love Gifts is a love sequence: the poetic rendering of the relationship between the ministrel
and his muse over a long period. The poet uses the relationship of the two personages to investigate
the human condition; hence the poems deal with dreams, desires, frustrations, hopes, contentment, and
seeking meaning in life. The poetic canvas links the two figures to other relationships and happenings of
their time in an all-embracing manner..
The Old Man in a State House
The Old Man in a State House and Other Stories is a
literary canvas which captures the restless matrix. The corruptive influence of a corrosive
oil economy, environmental degradation, wealth and
hubris, love, and more. It imaginatively takes the reader
on an excursion into the human condition.

African Literature - Gender Discourse, Religious Values,
and the African Worldview
This is a seminal work on the criticism of African Literature whose novel theoretical and
ideological approaches are bound to compel a re-thinking and re-examination of popular
concepts, pedagogies, and research methodologies. Even a scholar with a dissenting view
on any aspect of Salami-Boukari’s critical assertions or positions, cannot help but appreciate
unreservedly, the enormous originality and resourcefulness evident in the author’s intellectual
vibrancy and profundity.
Tigress at Full Moon
These poems are the embodiment of immortal imagination impregnated with the
spirit of creativity, they chant us to see the vision and imagine ourselves in it. On the
vernacular poems I only wish I could hear and feel the cadences of a language which
is so efficient in its structure, according to Michael Echeruo, that some say it was first
spoken in Eden. This Tigress roar is a roar to which we should pay close attention.
is the story of a seven-year old boy who is trying to understand
the people and the world around him. He is young and
sensitive, and afraid of darkness and violence. He is perplexed by mysteries
beyond his grasp. He is not only afraid of the unknown, he avoids it in
every possible manner. He begins by hiding from things and people that
frighten him. When he meets Akufo, a mild-mannered mad woman from
a nearby village, his young life is changed forever!
