This is the motive of Danielle Eyango in her poetic work titled, “Le parfum de ma mère” launched October 13, 2020 in Yaounde.
I write to heal the inner soul. Those were some of the striking words pronounced by Danielle Eyango during a ceremony to launch her collection of poems titled “Le parfum de ma mère” on October 13, 2020 in Yaounde. Via literary devices such as personification, hyperbole, metaphor amongst several others, the author was able to bring out the themes of despair, frustration, pain and then a feeling of hope at the end of the tunnel. The collection of 17 poems published by Editions De Midi illustrated with paintings narrates the youthful ordeals of the author and portrays the strong relation that exists between mother and daughter. “When I smell the perfume of my mother, there is that burning desire for me to scrabble something,” she says, “Even when I try to fight that spirit, the force that comes with it seems to be beyond control”.Read also : Parlement du rire : carrefour de l’humour
