It is so attractive, and I'm afraid I've ran my hands over it countless times, which obviously, I'm unapologetic about, because it's simply beautiful. Un kāpēc gan šajā laikā nepalutināt sevi ar kādu īsu stāstiņu vai dzejolīti, kad tik grūti smadzenēm likt pievērsties kādam tekstam. But also, there’s story-telling from the feisty woman angle which is much needed to present a different take on the tired old cliches.

I hardly ever read poetry, but sometimes some books just seem so interesting that they don’t leave you until you pick them up.Reimagining traditional tales, this empowering collection of stories, poems and beautiful hand-drawn illustrations gives Once Upon a Time a much-needed modern makeover. The last few poems are very disturbing to me considering they are the most likely to be remembered (being last). Complete with beautifully hand-drawn illustrations by Gill herself, Fierce Fairytales is an empowering collection of poems and stories for a new generation. Nikita Gill puts an adult, mostly feminist spin on common fairytales and legends in her collection, titled Fierce Fairytales: Poems and Stories to Stir Your Soul.

The language is great, all the self-love poems are fabulous, and I found so many good nuggets to remember for later. It's too bad because many of the poems near the beginning of this compilation are solid, strong takes on known stories. The only way to true equality is to work together to level the playing field; not to get revenge and one-up anyone over anyone else. My favourite poems from the collection were Trapped, Scheherazade The Clever, Wonderland Villain, The Dragon Witch’s Daughter, Baba Yaga and In Absentia: A Common Curse.The 103 third parties who use cookies on this service do so for their purposes of displaying and measuring personalized ads, generating audience insights, and developing and improving products. Tiek pieminētas tādas problēmas kā depresija, ēšanas traucējumi, pašvērtējuma problēmas, pašmīlestības svarīgums un sabiedrības nosodījums pret sievietēm, ar viedokli, nevēlēšanos radīt ģimeni, kā arī mēģinājumi lauzt nosodījumu, pret vīriešu emocijām, kas bija ļoti negaidīti un ārpus sieviešu emancipācijas vispārejai tēmai, kas valdīja šajā krājumā. Also, if you're a shipper of Disney Princesses and Princes, you probably won't enjoy some of the darker interpretations the author pursued 😂 Wanted to like it, just didn't enjoy it, unfortunately!

In these short stories and poems you’ll find well known fairytales with insights into characters, backstories and different endings. You will meet fearless princesses, a new kind of wolf lurking in the concrete jungle, and an independent Gretel who can bring down monsters on her own. I thought the author brought all these messages to us in a very accessible way, even for poetry noobs like me, which is what makes this so special.

Was pretty good until halfway through when I noticed it kept recycling its own ideas over and over again.This book explored themes of abuse and self-love, how women as well as men can be toxic, and how it is your own business how you decide to heal- and that healing and becoming yourself again is a form of magic in its own right. Maybe magic ends with me and it will never cross your path, but I want you to remember that survival is an art. Encased in a stunning hardcover, Nikita Gill's book of enchanting fairy tales reignites the wonder behind the stories we all know and love. Her work has appeared in Literary Orphans, Agave Magazine, Gravel Literary Journal, Monkeybicycle, Foliate Oak, MusePiePress, Dying Dahlia Review, The Rising Phoenix Review, Eunoia Review, Corvus Review, After The Pause and elsewhere.
