    In this collection of poems, Elijah Nobel describes grief and pain in the context of intimate relationships, and the process of recovery. Most of the poems in this collection fell flat on me. There are some very insightful verses which attempt to capture the complexity of the human experience of grief and pain, but these are very few and it was only in these rare moments that I emotionally connected to the words.

Most of the poems in this collection fell flat on me. There are some very insightful verses which attempt to capture the complexity of the human experience of grief and pain, but these are very few and it was only in these rare moments that I emotionally connected to the words. Nobel’s recurring portrayal of love in a highly sensualized form created an overall shallow effect for me. I would have really appreciated if he had emphasized the transcendental aspects of love more often, and also if he had described more of his lovers’ unique personalities rather than emphasizing their sensual qualities. Moreover, the qualities of courage, agency, self-maturation and self-growth that compose the road of recovery from past trauma are missing in this poem, which mostly emphasizes escaping pain through the formation of new intimate relationships.

I fell in love with every line that was written, there were so many parts that made my heart ache, and despite the short length of this book (being 80 pages and all), it’s worth every thing. It discusses heartbreak and the fear of falling in love again, it shows the agony of the loss of the one you love, it shows the pain and it shows the lust for someone’s touch. It makes me feel something, and that, to me, is what poetry does. It stabs you in the heart and shows you what it is like to feel. For my full review: https://booksandsustainability.wordpr...

    The author of these poems is a young man of 20 years. However, his writing is far beyond those years. Eli Noble writes of love and of pain in ways that only someone who has fully experienced both can comprehend. In his first book, Eli conquers subjects ranging from loves and losses to the pain experienced by others and you can easily understand in reading it why his work has been chosen for so many magazines.

Eli Noble writes of love and of pain in ways that only someone who has fully experienced both can comprehend. In his first book, Eli conquers subjects ranging from loves and losses to the pain experienced by others and you can easily understand in reading it why his work has been chosen for so many magazines. A problem found in many young authors is their tendency to pay attention only to their own pains and concerns. I don't see this in Eli. We do get several poems about his own pain but they are mixed with poems concerning many issues, including women's issues and he even contributes a battle anthem. I think you're going to love Eli as much as I always have. In his years of poetic creations, his works have never disappointed.

    Elijah Noble El writes about love, violence, religion, and a multitude of other topics with the kind of grace and deftness that can take even seasoned poets years to master. We see in his poems that happy endings are not always possible, yet El's voice brings us healing by the end of the collection. In many of his pages, women are heroines, and through his works like “Ode to the Bloody Panties,” we see that El is a hero too for tackling controversial and painful subjects.

In many of his pages, women are heroines, and through his works like “Ode to the Bloody Panties,” we see that El is a hero too for tackling controversial and painful subjects. Halfway through the collection, he writes, “We both know a soldier’s end.” And a soldier this author is, whose poetry will live on in my mind, and many others’, for years to come.

    Raw. 81 pages of an undoubtedly old soul telling stories and regrets through poetry. "I didn't believe in forgiveness until I needed it." Raw. 81 pages of an undoubtedly old soul telling stories and regrets through poetry. "I didn't believe in forgiveness until I needed it."
