Three Years Later,
A Critical Reexamination and
Revisitation of A Night withour Armor
note: Jewel Kilcher's book A Night Without Armor was released in June
1998, and so this month marks its third anniversary. In honor of this
LPZ friend Ethan
Paquin sends in Amazon.com reviews of Jewel Kilcher's book, interpolated
and unchanged; these were ostensibly genuinely favorable, and not sarcastic,
Jewel, don't let the naysayers get you down. Jewel, a "jack-of-all-trades"
has captured the essence of a time most of us has gotten to old to remember.
she is trully a wonderful unique individual. She is a true angle. "Jewel
Kilcher" is the most unique person someone could possibly be. If I could
say one thing to Jewel today, it would be that I would love to some
day meet her and if I did, my heart would be touched forever. WAY TO
I think some people are to soon to write her off as just another pop
singer in the music buisness. Some of you people really vex me. Poetry
in not just words. It takes patience, ditermination, hard work, love
of poetry, and most of all talent. And lots of it! it's well worth the
time reading it and figuring out her poetry :)
if love has never giving u an answer, it also deserves two thumbs up,
ten toes, one knee, and an elbow. I absolutely idalize Jewel. I loved
her poetry and reading the book has given me higher expectations for
myself as I mature as a writer.
That she is now published as a "poet" has certainly inflamed the passions
of the intellectually arrogant, and the insecure. There are those who
seem jealous that she is both very attractive, and that she brought
herself from poverty to success. Jewel is like your best friend. The
one who honestly tells you what she thinks of this shirt with those
pants or how you look with purple hair, or why this guy is wrong for
you, etc. Yes, granted, there are great poets and artists who languish
and toil without recognition. But they chose that life, and if some
of them had more business sense, they would be more successful and known.
I can totally relate with Jewel on SO many topics. Teachers should totally
let us read this book instead of Shakespeare or like, Robert Frost (they
are sooo boring!). I couldn't help but laugh and think...'yes Jewel,
I know what you mean'. I read Shakespeare and Poe, but neither of them
move me or touch me like Jewel does.
The book is the fuel now release the flame!!!!!READ THIS BOOK PEOPLE!!!!
I write poetry in my free time, and it doesn't even compare. Her first
book was amazingly deep. I believe the most important thing is that
you say what your feel not whether your poetry rhymes or contains allusions
to breasts are whatever. It has especially helped me to start writing
poetry. they are not your soul fires, they are jewel's. I seriously
encourage you to buy this book. Not a cent shall go to waste. You get
The poems have hidden meanings and that is what makes this collection
great. For example:
"We are loved beyond our ability to comprehend"
To me this
means that God loves us so much and not the puppy love that teenagers
go through but real unconditional love that will never end (God won't
"divorce us" because we do wrong he always loves us whether we are good
This also means to me that when you find that special someone they would
give their life for you and that is hard to understand.
This example is perfect because it has two meanings earthly love and
This is why it takes a complex thinker to comprehend her poems.
note: "from one review"]
It shows that she is not some flunky like Brittney Spears. Damn! This
girls got talent. I'm telling you. BECAUSE OF HER I FIND THE AMBITION
TO FIND MY DREAMS.
This book by Jewel is the best book of poetry ever written. I think
that this book is the best poetry book ANYone could ever read! I suggest
you buy the audio version which makes all her poems come to life. I
am in love with jewel, for her work touches me more than anything I've
ever read, with exception to the Bible. Plus, amazon gives you the best
price- i bought my copy for 19.00!
