A Night Without Armor: Poems by Jewel Kilcher

By Jewel Kilcher

I have discovered that no longer all poetry lends itself to song -- a few recommendations must be sung in basic terms opposed to the silence. There are softer and not more tangible part[s] of our selves which are so necessary to peace, to openheartedness, to unfolding the imaginative and prescient and the religious realm of our lives, to exposing our souls. - Jewel, From the Preface Writing poems and holding journals when you consider that early life, Jewel has been trying to find fact and that means, turning to her phrases to checklist, to find, and to mirror. In an evening with no Armor, her first selection of poetry, Jewel explores the hearth of past love, the fading of ardour, the giving of belief, the teachings of betrayal, and the therapeutic of intimacy.She delves into issues of the house, the relief of kinfolk, the wonderful thing about Alaska, and the dislocation of divorce. after which there are the photographs of the line, the folk, the bars, the planes, areas unique and mundane, loneliness and friendship. Frank and sincere, critical and all of sudden playful, an evening with out Armor is a skilled artist's intimate portrait of what makes us uniquely human.
