    1 thought on “A Night Without Armor II: The Revenge”

    1. This book is hysterical. I have it on an end table in my living room, along side Jewel's A Night Without Armor. You should read them together for the full effect. He has everything down--the picture on the back cover, the titles to the poems, his preface… it's brilliant. If you happen to love Jewel's poetry, you may find this book upsetting Or? ENLIGHTENING. Jewel is not a good writer. Although this book could be the best thing that ever happened to Jewel's book; it probably sells more accompa [...]

    2. maybe even 2.5, 2.7 I never really thought there'd be a book of poems I'd not be too keen on, but here we are. There's definitely some poems in here that I like, but as a overall cohesive set I didn't really enjoy it as much. I'm not really one for sexual stuff generally, and there was a lot in there that didn't jive with me because of it. Like others, I wonder if this might be more appreciated if I'd read the book it's based on. If I can track it down I suppose I'll give it a shot and see.

    3. Wondering if this would be better with editing. Found some of the poems offensive like "Fat Girl." Wondering if it might be more interesting if I compared it to Jewel's poems. Given Beau Sia's influence on the New York slam scene, I hope he is better than this odd book.

    4. This book is a parody of Jewel's book A Night Without Armor. I've never read the book by Jewel, but I've been wanting to read this book by Beau Sia ever since I heard about it by reading Alloy Book's Slam collection in middle school. So when I finally managed to get my hand on a copy, I was pretty happy.It's a short read, only 115 pages, and quite a few of those pages are illustrations or short poems. Most of the poems are about having sex, wanting to be famous, hating some random fat woman, and [...]

    5. i read this waaaaay back. it's still funny and sassy and smart, although there are admittedly a few missteps where just a little more grounding would get the joke/point across better in this context.

    6. Funny and mechanically more complex that its source material. Whenever anyone turns the establishment on its ear (especially when the establishment is using fame in another medium as a proxy for actual talent), that is my favorite flavor of subversion.

    7. funny, but not THAT funny. I like his spoken word stuff, but the whole fake-Jewel conceit gets old fast. and he just talks about sex 90% of the time. I accept that though, I think of poets as lovers by trade. I'm suspicious of any poet who doesn't leave a bunch of lovers/spouses in their wake

    8. I almost fell over reading this. If you are tightly wound about your poetry this is not for you, but if you can laugh outloud in a book store or cafe and not think "oh! how embarassing" then this is for you. Vulgar, sarcastic, caustic, and it just gets better from there

    9. This is slam poet Beau Sia's response to Jewel's book of poetry, "A night without armor" He has kept the titles, just written his own versions of jewel's, um, poems.

    10. Hilariously Barbed. I hope someone never does this to me one day. . . then again, it might be pretty freaking cool.

    11. Quite funny, especially at the time it was released. There is a definite mix of seriousness throughout, though, that is surprising

    12. This collection of poetry is hilarious; everybody I've shown this book to has laughed hysterically! I loved this book!

    13. What's up with the fat-phobia in this book? I've read his newer poems and like beau sia as a fellow As Am poet, but these poems from his earlier work turn me off.

    14. Beau Sia is great - this book is meant to be kind of a joke, and while some of the poems are hilarious, some of them are insightful."I am patient" and "pretty" are my favorites.

    15. Beau is one of my top favourite authors - witty, well written, humorous, relatable, skilled, intelligent, and just all around amazing.
