Product description

Product Description

Elias Raven's poetry has been gaining critical acclaim since he came onto the poetry scene a few years ago. His book "The Painted Shadows" has been recognized by many as a work that is both refreshing and challenging at the same time. His poetry is familiar, yet the style is fully his own. The authors meditations on love & loss, life & death, religion & spirituality, his own personal identity, humanity, history & sexuality all form a compelling narrative for the reader as he pushes the absolute limits of his creativity. This poet delves deeply into his past and present taking us all on a very real and personal journey of the spirit as he seeks to articulate his visions with the rest of us. "The poetry of his writing embodies a range of feelings and images that are always unpredictable, yet beautiful and haunting at the same time...His words resonate with the reader and open doorways to the limitless possibilities [whether he] is proposing his own re-interpretation or vision to historical images and text. His words are painful to read at times, the images that come forth bleed from his heart echoing in the interior of his soul, screaming his pain... Still other passages are deeply erotic and mesmerizing, leaving the reader to wonder how much is from this poets own personal reality. He can look into the night and transcend meaning, his words leave an indelible impression, causing the reader to dive back in again and again looking for hidden meanings and gems among the passages...Elias truly gives space to poetic meaning and initiates further dialogue leaving the reader wanting more and more." KB

The assembled guest poets that are in the back of this book of poetry both old and new form a wonderful compliment to this gifted writers verse. Familiar names from the indie writing community like Ethan Radcliff, Alan Walker & Alexandria Sure along with a slew of new and upcoming poets all form a wonderful framework and introduction to this writers poetic vision.

This was a fun and quick read. What a beautiful mix of different styles of poetry. Some made me smile with sweetness, others were so HOT they made me blush Woohooo! And some of them, Conversation and Revelation, left me thinking.
I'm new to this author's writing and I love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Collection of Poetry 28 November 2015
By Maria G. Martinez - Published on

I have always thought poetry was a author's way of so eloquently describing the emotions that I could not quite find a way to express at times.
Elias Raven and all the poets here have that rare gift of evoking just the right set to bring life to those feelings.
From the heights and depths of the soul. Each one is a word picture of your thoughts.
I highly recommend you take the time to read these poems and maybe see yourself in a few of them.
Well done to Elias and all the other talented authors collected here.
5.0 out of 5 stars This Poetry Collection is Beautiful! 5 September 2016

What I have always loved about poetry is it's ability to allow another heart to transfuse yours. Another perspective, of the cracks or canyons, to shift our own landscape. Elias Raven's poetry along with his guests point out the necessity of hope, the beauty that lies in wait: under the bed covers or within a rainy day. He reminds us that passion is possible, and to always see with wonder and gentle eyes. Buy this poetry book, and fall into a beautiful world, that shimmers through the author's hearty words.
