These poems speak, in ardent voices, about our affinities: an articulate, black bear mourns habitat loss; a frail man and failing dog become one; a scientist and her African grey parrot research language acquisition for thirty years. Wise, capacious, by turns unsettling and joyous, The Black Bear Inside Me incorporates histories and losses into a luminous present.

It's with this eye toward discovery and a attention to detail that poet Robin Becker brings a rapturous use of language to her eighth full-length collection. Academy of American Poets Educator Newsletter. Teach This Poem. Follow Us. Find Poets.

I love it when poetry moves me, this collection did that Aug 19, Harker rated it it was amazing. The pieces within and the collection as a whole do not rely on an overabundance of hyper-stylized words, instead focusing on getting to the reader with the sharp lines and curves of language, both literally and figuratively. This is something achievable in standard books though it's hard to find because there are so many other aspects in longer form storytelling, but poetry strips all of that extraneous detail away.

Elisabet's book offers the chance to really really feel like there are other people that have these thoughts. The need to know who we are. It might be simple to some, but for others, trying to figure out what our identity is can be a struggle on a daily basis. This particular poem early on encapsulates how identity can be as unfathomable as the distance between the stars.

As I was reading it, I felt a little sick to my stomach because it perfectly described what it was like to be inside my head, what it is that I fight against on a daily basis. It is so hard to describe that to people that are neurotypical because the words don't always make sense, stumbling out of my mouth, but Elisabet wrote them, like they spilled out of my own head.

Typically harsh images clashing with typically soft, stereotypes of that nature, are one way, but there were also lines that pointed to other ways of finding solace, such as the clouds that allow sunlight to rest within. When the media portrays mental illness or self harm in movies or television shows, a lot of the time it gets shown as something beautiful, the character a idealized portrait that we as the audience are meant to love; or the self harm is somehow to be interpreted as a noble form of coping.

Salas's examination of this idealization of suffering, though brief, was strong and direct. I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. Dec 27, Jay G rated it liked it. Want to see more bookish things from me? This is Elizabet's debut poetry collection that covers a wide variety of topics from self hate to learning to love yourself.

I loved how she included trigger warnings at the beginning and I think that will be very helpful for some as a lot of these poems are brutally honest. I absolutely loved this book. Elisabet's writing is so raw and honest, and so many times throughout the Chaos inside Me I felt like crying because I could really relate to her words. Topics range from love to self-image and I loved how there was a trigger warning at the start.

Aug 18, Jordan rated it it was amazing. I received an arc from the author in exchange for an honest review, this book comes out Nov. Elisabet's poetry debut is good enough to be put along-side my experiences with Rupi Kaur and Amanda Lovelace, and I am so grateful that I was fortunate enough to receive an advanced copy.

I was lucky enough to get to read this collection, and I can't say enough good things about it. Elisabet Salas' debut is stunning. The poetry in here is a wonderful mix of strength, rediscovering power, self-love, and the struggle of hating yourself - all things many of us have experienced.
