Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One of the most respected artists in popular music today, Jewel is much more than a music industry success with her debut album selling more than 10 million copies.

Before her gifted songwriting comes an even more individual art: Poetry.

Now available in paperback, A Night without Armor highlights the poetry of Jewel taken from her journals which are both intimate and inspiring, to be embraced and enjoyed.

Writing poems and keeping journals since childhood, Jewel has been searching for truth and meaning, turning to her words to record, to discover, and to reflect.

In A Night Without Armor, her first collection of poetry, Jewel explores the fire of first love, the lessons of betrayal, and the healing of intimacy. She delves into matters of the home, the comfort of family, the beauty of Alaska, and the dislocation of divorce.

Frank and honest, serious and suddenly playful, A Night Without Armor is a talented artist's intimate portrait of what makes us uniquely human.

Synopsis:

I've learned that not all poetry lends itself to music--some thoughts need to be sung only against the silence. These are softer and less tangible parts of ourselves that are so essential to peace, to open-heartedness, to unfolding the vision and the spiritual realm of our lives, to exposing our souls.

-- Jewel from the Preface

I was at barnes and noble looking for something to read in the poetry section while my boyfriend was doing some research and I came across Jewel's "A Night Without Armor." I've never been so intrigued, her writing was so unique.. She painted pictures using words no one ever thinks of using.. I could understand her feelings and thoughts and got so into it that before I knew it I'd read the entire thing. I love how random her poems can be like the "woman in 1b" yet so very interesting and insightful. In another one of her poems... I forget the name.. She writes about self image and how young girls are exposing themselves to the world.. Her poems are fantastic eye openers and hold beautiful, strong meaning. She definitely won me over, by far my favorite poet. A+ to this book .
