Towards Universal Harmony: The Works of Two Ghanaian Poets

G. Edzordzi Agbozo, Mawuli Adjei, David Ako Odoi

Abstract


The past decades of human existence were draped with varied experiences: some serene and others horrifying. Writers make efforts as the conscience of humanity, to speak to the different human experiences that dawned on the world. In the face of horrifying histories and current international upheavals, some writers call for reconciliation and universal harmony. This paper explores how two contemporary Ghanaian poets try to advocate global coexistence in their works as well as suggest processes of healing and reconciliation worldwide. This study is carried out to add to the corpus of work on universal harmony, especially from the African/Ghanaian writing/cultural worldview.

Keywords: Acquah, Anyidoho, Ghana, poetry, reconciliation.
