In this wonderful collection, Funke Awodiya has established herself not only as a poetess following a literary code created by and for men, but also those issues that make a woman, a woman. In WOMAN of a WOMAN, she writes her poetry with confidence and makes a woman’s voice heard where it traditionally does not exist. Even when she makes a man a subject of her poems, she is still able to make him both a muse and an object the way she wants him to be. The heightened sensuality of her verses, particularly for a poetess even though not a new phenomenon still gives her voice a unique cadence and strength which will benefit men and women if they can hearken to her call.
