This is a critical essay that examines the Nigerian Romanus Egudu 's poetry, contained in his new book of poems called Prayer of the Powerless, as the work of a historical and virtuous poet. The argument posited is that the poet dwells on the past, present and future history of governance in his country in such a way that reveals him as a rebel with strong moral convictions.
