    I ve always been a big fan of Saul Williams s music, and I love the one poetry book I have of his, The Dead Emcee Scrolls, so I was really excited for this It s a commissioned collection of poetry loosely about America, being American, race in America and so on, and there are some really stunning pieces in here He s got a great sense of rhythm and beauty and transcendence and plays around with words just enough that it s satisfying without being tiresome I was surprised by the inclusion of a I ve always been a big fan of Saul Williams s music, and I love the one poetry book I have of his, The Dead Emcee Scrolls, so I was really excited for this It s a commissioned collection of poetry loosely about America, being American, race in America and so on, and there are some really stunning pieces in here He s got a great sense of rhythm and beauty and transcendence and plays around with words just enough that it s satisfying without being tiresome I was surprised by the inclusion of a large chunk of unfinished film script for a biopic Williams had been working on about the life of Miles Davis and his relationship with Juliette Greco in Paris I m barely knowledgeable about jazz or any of that scene, so I didn t know what to expect I ve never been too receptive to reading scripts as is, but this had some great moments Muchmoving though was the lengthy introduction and prologue to the collection, where Williams tracks his relationship with his own American ness and blackness through his childhood.As a collection of poems it s really pretty good I even found myself bookmarking a few, which doesn t happen to me much And after finishing it I find myself evenexcited for his new album

    Saul Williams will forever be my favorite Hip Hop artist, and possibly my favorite modern poet as well though I am shamefully ignorant on that front This book did not disappoint my expectations I think I ll be picking up his other volumes.There were fantastic poems in here, and a surprisingly hard hitting Prologue as well I also really liked how he changed up not only his meter and style, but also the format One might be a very traditional Iambic Pentameter piece, the next might be a play Saul Williams will forever be my favorite Hip Hop artist, and possibly my favorite modern poet as well though I am shamefully ignorant on that front This book did not disappoint my expectations I think I ll be picking up his other volumes.There were fantastic poems in here, and a surprisingly hard hitting Prologue as well I also really liked how he changed up not only his meter and style, but also the format One might be a very traditional Iambic Pentameter piece, the next might be a play and even be pretty cinematic with its imagery.At any rate, the themes in here are something every American should explore Highly recommended

    I really wanted to expected to enjoy this bookthan I did I loved the first 3 4ths of it, the core poetry of the volume But there is a funky play poem that takes up the last quarter of the book, which I didn t find as appealing But overall the rhythms, images, and themes of Williams poems here like his latest album Martyr Loser King, are powerful and moving As always, Williams draws wonderful connections across various themes, places, figures forcing one to reflect and regroup.

    I d really to be able to discuss this with someone I enjoyed the stories in the beginning and the story that was weaved throughout the book in quasi verse The section on Miles Davis, the fictional account with his French lover, skipped I had zero interest in that section I get why it s added and the point but as this junction for strictly personal reasons no interest in jaZZ.

    By far, his best work to date And that s coming from a very, very avid fan Hell, I even wrote one of my own books with inspiration from his impeccable formatting that creates a better context for the words I highly recommend this book to everyone and anyone that can appreciate one of the most prolific artist poet philosopher that our generation has seen to date

    I m not usually one for poetry, especially written poetry I m of the mind that poetry is meant to be heard But Williams might have changed my mind about this at least to some extent Part poetry, part script, part visual art, this book has a little bit of everything It uses the page to express themes in the poems One poem about division is literally split down the middle When the words are scattered across the page, it feels like you are really looking into someone s stream of consciousnes I m not usually one for poetry, especially written poetry I m of the mind that poetry is meant to be heard But Williams might have changed my mind about this at least to some extent Part poetry, part script, part visual art, this book has a little bit of everything It uses the page to express themes in the poems One poem about division is literally split down the middle When the words are scattered across the page, it feels like you are really looking into someone s stream of consciousness Williams makes the poems interactive in a way I don t usually see and it was so refreshing I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review

    Disclosure I received this book of poetry from a giveaway.I actually received this about a year or possiblyago Quite frankly, I was not on my priority list to read in the midst of hectic school years This summer I finally sat down to take it all in The poetry has a very interesting tone to it, especially since most of the ones I have read were in class the very upsetting ones It was rather easy to read and understand, but the poetry simply didn t click with me A well done work that Disclosure I received this book of poetry from a giveaway.I actually received this about a year or possiblyago Quite frankly, I was not on my priority list to read in the midst of hectic school years This summer I finally sat down to take it all in The poetry has a very interesting tone to it, especially since most of the ones I have read were in class the very upsetting ones It was rather easy to read and understand, but the poetry simply didn t click with me A well done work that just wasn t my cup of tea

    Definitely a talented author, and some of the pieces in this book are amazing, but I find that the overall product sometimes fail to meet its own standards.By which I mean that this book is long, and perhaps too long for its own good It contain a lot of individual poems, some of which were way less good than others, and in my opinion unnecessary A condensed version of this book could have made a masterpiece, but as it is now it has quite a way to go.Still an enjoyable read though.

    I would have liked this better if I had read it when it in 2015 When US a was published social media was in full swing, horrific news stories fueled the Black Lives Matter movement and Wall Street was facing Occupation A few years later, Saul Williams still topical collection encompasses a rhythm all his own Still, it felt super rant y Maybe just not my favorite of his work.
