about

Magnus Opus: A Tribute to Ntarikon is a scathing indictment of the political status quo in the Republic of Cameroon where the ruling party, the Cameroon People’s Democratic Movement (CPDM), rides roughshod over the populace. In this long poem, Vakunta cries out poignantly against social dystopia and the deplorable moments lived by members of the Social Democratic Front (SDF) at Ntarikon Park on May 26, 1990. One cannot read this poem without feeling the despair and helplessness experienced by members of this political party as they were maimed, killed and reminded that the future holds no good for them. The prosody and semantics of the poem amplify the ontological angst experienced by Cameroonians on a daily basis.” - Kashama Mulamba, Ph.D, Professor of English and French, Olivet Nazarene University, USA

Dr. Peter W. Vakunta is Assistant Professor and Chair of the Department of Global Languages and Cross-Cultural Studies at the University of Indianapolis, in the United States of America. He is a prolific writer with several fictional and non-fictional books to his credit.
