Interview with Esiaba Irobi

                   
                   "Poetry is the energy that moves the world.
                    It is that inexplicable force that brought the
                    universe into being and which will also destroy it."

- Esiaba Irobi


My electronic conversation with Esiaba Irobi Associate Professor of International Theatre and Film at Ohio University, Athens, USA, started in 2002. He was our Guest Poet for October 2002, unfortunately, our schedules did not help the progress of the interview. The finished product is pretty rough stuff, extremely strong and is possibly likely to offend just a little bit. I have not deemed it expedient to edit the soul out of his venom in order to appear politically correct. Definitely not for anyone easily offended:
