Review ☆ If My Body Could Speak Ç PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free If My Body Could Speak is about fighting for the space one takes up in a world that would rat. Massive TW for anorexiaeating disorders and rapesexual assault also homophobiaI was THRILLED when I heard that Blythe had a new collection out because I received a copy of Give Me A God I Can Relate To in 2015 and gave it a glowing five stars I first heard about Blythe from Button Poetry AKA the publisher of this new collection and I fell in love with her for her poem Pocket Sized Feminism which is also in this collection To this day I still get chills reading some of Blythe s most hard hitting lines but something about reading this almost four years later has put it into perspective as not uite my favoriteMany of these poems are repeats of ones I ve read or heard her perform before so half of my enjoyment was revisiting old poems Some of my favorite lines by her brought tears to my eyes and gave me chills I really enjoy her writing because although it s not necessarily lyrical or adherent to any style her ability to pack a punch in a succinct statement is really honed Still there were moments where the free verse became a bit too rambly seemingly unedited in a way that made the writing too collouial or childish for my taste It only happened once or twice in a handful of poems but it was enough to slow me down and make me cringe at a corny line or two I cannot wait to get a physical copy of this because that cover is magnificent Though I can t really relate to the subjects Blythe talks about most of the time anorexia and rape her words still really stick with me The 2015 Feminist Whitney probably would have rated this five stars but in comparison to other feminist collections I ve read especially by women of color I think the discussion of feminism is a bit narrow But even if you don t pick up this book you definitely should search Blythe on YouTube and spare three minutes to hear her read one of her poems She s incredible

Review ☆ If My Body Could Speak Ç PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Modes of womanhood and women's bodies Through love loss and the struggles of disordered eatin. It s no secret that I am a sucker for poetry especially from spoken word artists and especially especially books from Button Poetry And Blythe Baird s performances of pieces from this collection especially When the Fat Girl Gets Skinny have been among my favorites for a while But after Sabrina Benaim s disappointing Depression and Other Magic Tricks I guess I got a little soured on the whole collections by performers concept and I did not expect this entire collection to be this greatBut I was wrong This book was amazing I read it in a single sitting Seriously even when I needed to brush my teeth I took my Kindle with me and kept reading Despite the fact that she is only 22 years old literally my age what Baird writes with passion and elouence that few poets established or otherwise manage to achieve Her writing is not pretentious but it is also not the all too popular Instagram poetry that is so popular as of late Rupi Kaur I m looking at you The pieces are long enough to feel like fully developed concepts but short enough to feel compulsively readable and lend themselves easily to the one chapter phenomenonThe collection largely focuses on issues of body image trauma sexuality and personal identity Though the topics are serious Baird presents them in such a way that they are not overwhelmingly heavy just raw and honest From her own experience with sexual assault to coming to terms with the fact that she likes girls from conflicts with her family to her history of disordered eating she covers a series of themes that are at once intensely personal and resoundingly universal All of her thoughts are incredibly relevant and timely in a world where women are increasingly under pressure from society and the men around us to be a certain way act a certain way and accept terrible things as being just the way things are If My Body Could Speak ought to be reuired reading for all young women today It is a testament to the strength of the individual and a pointed callout of the problematic society we live in It is beautiful personal readable and so so importantTrigger warnings for eating disorders sexual assault homophobia mental illness and mention of self harm Thanks to NetGalley for providing me with an eARC of this book in exchange for an honest review
