Wild Embers: Poems of Rebellion, Fire and Beauty Reviews

  • Cora ☕ Tea Party Princess

    This was absolutely incredible. Breathtaking. Captivating. Haunting. I just can't get my words into an appropriate semblance of sense to actually review it.

    Taken from 'Belle':

    After reading this wondrous piece of work, it is hard to believe that Nikita Gill received 137 rejections from publishers. She is a poet who uses tumblr and Instagram originally to post her poems, and finally her unseen poems were published in this book, "Wild Embers."

    Her poetry covers such a wide range of topics. From the empowering poetry; the miracle of life, your unique self, accepting your own flaws, womanhood. To the poetry that felt like punches to the gut; relationships of both physical and mental abuse, rape, victim-blaming, bullying (see poems; 'Learned Helplessness' and 'Boys Will Be Boys'). Her poetry invokes the empathetic feeling of what some women (and men) experience, how they are torn down and how they grow from this, taking gradual steps to rebuild even though there are challenges ahead.

    This books also features rewritten fairytales, finding your own magic and sorcery, inviting in the wild-self, and goddess mythology with a feminist, empowering retelling. It leaves room to think about revolution, anger over what needs to change, and your own personal growth and acceptance.

    Some of the poems were heavily based around comparisons to nature and the universe and how this is rooted in personal experiences, some which are highly relatable.

    Overall this poetry was highly emotive... whether this be anger, empowerment, or the feeling of a need of revolution, these poems hit you directly and are relevant in today's society.

    I wish I had been able to learn this form of poetry in school as I probably would've picked up poetry outside of the academic-setting a lot sooner.

    An absolutely powerful read from Nikita Gill!

    There was so much feels while reading this poetry book. And I can’t coherent the words how to describe this beautiful art. This poetry tells all the heartaches, self-love and being strong no matter how hard the challenges are.

    This was my first poetry book written by Niki

    This was my first poetry book written by Nikita Gill, and it will not be the last. Though there were times that the words or the concepts were sometimes redundant, the effects it made was undeniably strong.

    Hope I can read more works of Nikita Gill! A thumbs up and 4/5 stars for me!

    Oh man, Nikita Gill's poems never cease to amaze me. Soulful, lyrical and touching. Some of them almost made me tear up. It inspires me to keep going and never give up on my dreams no matter how many times I stumbled. *sighs* Just beautiful.

    I went into this not knowing what to expect from the author, especially after a bit disconnected with the writing in 

    . But Nikita Gill had me pleasantly surprised with this follow-up book.

    I recently came to the realization, after some much-needed trial and error with multiple poetry collections, than I enjoy my poems focused more on self-love over romantic love. And 

    brought just that to the table. I would go so far as to say that this is the ultimate self-care poetry collection. The practice of learning to love yourself is a continuous theme over the course of these poems, rather than just making an appearance here and there. So are the themes of girl power, kindness and confidence, the grandiosity of space (her fascination with the intergalactic was so contagious, I now have my eyes set on reading 

    ), rewriting classic Disney fairytales to fit a more feminist point of view, and the powerful women in mythology. Speaking of the last two, I really enjoyed Gill's modern take on the question:

     It added something refreshing that I hadn’t seen before in previous poetry collections.

    And to share a few of my favorite caught gems from

    The last poem was a majestic note to end on.

    And speaking on the theme, I listened to the acoustic version of

    while reading, which really amped up my experience.

    I loved the cover and title of this, and was even really into the first few poems, which used a lot of science and outerspace metaphor to discuss bodies. But then the poems switched over into a trauma, psychology, not-really-poetry mode. At least, not literary poetry. If this is going to a be new thing in the world of Instagram and Tumblr poets who are really employing words to deal with trauma (and wow is the word trauma mentioned in this volume a lot, a lot, a lot)... well I think this is okay

If this is going to a be new thing in the world of Instagram and Tumblr poets who are really employing words to deal with trauma (and wow is the word trauma mentioned in this volume a lot, a lot, a lot)... well I think this is okay. But I don't know that it is poetry, exactly.

    Fans of Rupi Kaur may like this (but some like Kaur that don't like others like her). Maybe the true test is if you liked both Kaur and

    , then this is probably the book for you.

    At the same time I don't want to blame the author or publisher for not meeting my expectations when there isn't really another thing to call it at this point. But I recommend creating that genre moving forward to help us readers separate out the therapy poetry from the other types.

  • Lea Dokter

    2.5/5. There are definitely a few gems in this poetry collection, but I feel like Gill needs to break out of her comfortzone. There is quite a lot of repetition in the symbolism and metaphors she uses, and the amount of almost-but-not-quite motivational speeches made me grind my teeth at points. Gill definitely has potential, but in my opinon her work needs more polishing and a splash of maturity.
