  • Review Of Iwu Jeff's Verdict Of The Gods By Ilegbemi Idowu Joshua

    Review Of Iwu Jeff's Verdict Of The Gods By Ilegbemi Idowu Joshua


    Summary:

    Book Title: Verdict of the Gods
    Playwright: Iwu, Jeff
    Publisher: Transconventional Publishers
    Year Published: July 2020
    ISBN: 978-978-979-443-0
    Number of Pages: 84
    Reviewer: Ilegbemi Idowu Joshua


    The gods are silent and mortals are living in terror. Their silence keeps mortals in a calamitous state. Can they be appeased? What do they need for their appeasement?

    Iwu Jeff's Verdict of the Gods sets our feet on the path of our forgotten culture. The writer achieves this using Igbo land (Achara) as his setting. This setting can be a representation of our Nigerian society in doom and in need of a saviour.

    The playwright also embellishes his work with proverbs, which is what Africans are known with. The words are carefully selected to reflect the social status of the various characters, this is seen in the various meetings of the elders at the palace and the various visitations of the villagers to the king's palace.

    In Verdict of the Gods, the playwright points to the aftermath of our actions here on earth. There are arrays of problems that have been bedevilling us and this shows that we are the architect of our own misfortune. This scenario is captured here:

    "You killed the gods. Some you stoned to death.
    Some you buried alive. Some you hanged on the tree. 
     You took justice in your own hands" (P.71)

    From the above, it is lucid to concur here that what has been happening to the people of Achara is as a result of the dirty things they soiled their hands with in the past. Now, these things become the monstrous shadows of evil coming to hunt them. The old, young, able and disabled women and men are paying dearly for this. The play is indeed a revelation.

    The play is a microcosm of the Nigerian society. Nigeria is now plagued by the curse of innocent bloodshed before now. Who will pay the ultimate price? It touches one deeply in the marrow.

    Achara is doomed and faces lots of deaths and calamities, a prize for her evil and her negligence of the gods. A prize for forsaking the gods and going their own way. The people of Achara now wallows in pains and suffering. The writer draws a map of how the elders run helter-skelter in search of solutions to the Calamities they face in the land. Thus: “Some of the elders will visit the sacred shrine of Eziakwo to see Agiriga" (P. 19).

    The writer depicts the king as a man who loves his people. He is sad because the land is at the brink of its collapse and death fears no one in the land. The king's words are soothing at all times. He knows what to see to the people in the midst of troubles and doom.

    As the play progresses, the writer dives into the issue of male-child preference and male dominance that is prevalent in our society. The playwright portrays Africa as a continent that is patriarchal in nature. This is captured in the various conservations of the women who cry out against the subjugation and humiliation they suffer in the community. Thus, Nnenna says:

    "What can we do? Aren't we confined to our kitchens?
    Can the men allow us to speak? A woman has no say in
    the affairs of the land: she dares not raise her head. 
    She is to dance to the beat played by men". (P. 55).

    Adamma says this too:

    We are always pushed aside in everything. The late Oka's wife,
    was hindered from partaking in her husband's inheritance 
    just because she had no male child (P. 56.)

    It could be inferred from the foregoing that such societal expectation could snowball to psychic -depression if the societal expectation (Male-child) is not meant. That is the case of Oka's wife when she could not give birth to a male child. Sadly to say, women become sacrificial Lamb as they are meant to remain mute even at abattoir.

    On a final note,

    To avert the curse placed on the land (Achara), a lamb must be sacrificed. Who will present himself on the altar to be used to cleanse the land? Who will become the saving Messiah to Achara?

    It is to be noted that the activities that take place in the play are fashioned by the gods. This can be explained from the prologue of the play where the three deities meet to discuss the issues of the land. The three deities can be given a symbolic interpretation. The writer uses them to represent unity. The cover page of the play also captures this. It could also represent the major three tribes of Nigeria. Here, it is inferred that for us to progress in this country, we need to be united.

    There are lots of stereotypes that are broken in this play. This is uncommon to most African works. Through this play, one will learn to appreciate the African traditional religion, contrary to the belief held that our culture and traditions are bad and bloodthirsty. No. The author shows that there are still many good things about Africa and Africans. He also condemns certain attitudes of our leaders and followers. This indeed shows that literature is a powerful tool used to negate all false beliefs propagated in the society.

    The play is indeed and interesting one. A reader would not like to drop it when the eyes are fixed on it. One encounters something new at the opening of every page.

    The structure of the play is not in the usual method of having acts and scenes. Rather, the author makes it unique by breaking the play into three parts. The three parts is also symbolic as there are three deities that appear in the play. This also points to the rule of having a play united in three unities. Every new scene begins with beautiful proverbs or words of wisdom which remains recorded in the mind of readers. This is part of the author's style.

    The gods are mute and what will the people of the land do? In 'Verdict of the Gods' is verdict of the gods.

  • 5 Reasons You Should Never Publish Your Book Without ISBN

    5 Reasons You Should Never Publish Your Book Without ISBN

    I have had couples of relationships majorly with first-time authors, and it’s understandable; given the fact that ACEworld Publishers has always been known for giving light to sprouting flowers.

    The literary community is saturated. Of course, you may think otherwise due to derailing in reading culture especially here in Nigeria but I put it to you that the Literary community is saturated. Now the problem is that the cake is not shared equally. If you thought writers are poor, you would be startled when you get to know the few folks amongst us getting thousands of dollar paychecks (but with a clean mouth). Yes, they most likely won’t tell you how it’s done. Surprised? Don’t be! You can learn more about how writers make money in Nigeria here.

    However, information is knowledge; and knowledge is key, so if you want to dine with the kings, you need to know how things are done so you don’t end up wishing otherwise. This is why bridging the gap is necessary. So…

    What is ISBN and why is it so important?


    According to International ISBN Agency, an ISBN is essentially a product identifier used by publishers, booksellers, libraries, internet retailers and other supply chain participants for ordering, listing, sales records and stock control purposes. The ISBN identifies the registrant as well as the specific title, edition and format.

    An ISBN (International Standard Book Number) is a 13-digit number calculated by using a specific mathematical formula and include a check digit to validate the number.

    Each ISBN consists of 5 elements with each section being separated by spaces or hyphens. Three of the five elements may be of varying length:
    • Prefix element – currently this can only be either 978 or 979. It is always 3 digits in length
    • Registration group element – this identifies the particular country, geographical region, or language area participating in the ISBN system. This element may be between 1 and 5 digits in length
    • Registrant element – this identifies the particular publisher or imprint. This may be up to 7 digits in length
    • Publication element – this identifies the particular edition and format of a specific title. This may be up to 6 digits in length
    • Check digit – this is always the final single digit that mathematically validates the rest of the number. It is calculated using a Modulus 10 system with alternate weights of 1 and 3.

    Importance of ISBN: why you should never publish without it

    Identity

    ISBN is your book’s identity in the global market. This is simple: ask yourself why it’s necessary for you to have a National Identification Number (NIN). Ask yourself why you are required to provide an ID Card everywhere you find yourself: school, office etc. Simply put as, without ISBN, your book has no identity. Talk about the Title, it holds no unique ground.

    Supply Chains

    Many publishing and supply chain systems are based on ISBN. You want your book to travel the world right? You want it to find spots in International libraries and catalogues, distributed and read by millions around the world? ISBN is the key, the visa, ticket and green card.

    Bookstores Requirement

    Most recognized bookstores won’t feature or sell your book if it is not first listed within their warehouse database. To get there, your book must have a unique ISBN. So if I may ask you, why would you allow your book to suffer automatic rejections? You have written something more African than Things Fall Apart, fine. But why subject it to unnecessary limitations?

    Lending Rights

    The national lending right in some countries is based on the ISBN. Such schemes enable authors and illustrators to receive payments proportionate to the number of times that their books are lent out by public libraries.

    Global Presence

    An ISBN identifies the registrant, title, edition and format of products used by publishers, bookstores, libraries, etc. and is important for ordering, sales reporting and inventory control. An ISBN increases the chances that your book will be found.


    Frequently Asked Questions as regard ISBN:


    Are ISBN numbers unique?

    Yes

    Where is an ISBN located?

    On most books, the ISBN number can be found on the back cover, next to the barcode. If a book doesn’t show the ISBN on the back cover, look on the page featuring the copyright and publisher information and the ISBN will be found there.

    How long does an ISBN last?

    An ISBN number never expires. Even very old numbers with only 10 digits can be converted into a 13-digit code.

    Who issues ISBN?

    In Nigeria, ISBN is issued by the National Library.

    Can 2 books have the same ISBN?


    No. ISBN is a unique number assigned to books individually.

    How do I get an ISBN for my book?

    That’s actually included in our supplemtary services at ACEworld Publishers. To get a National Library Issued ISBN, fill this form below:
