I feel bad only marking this two stars, because I’m a big untouchedd of Emilie Autumn. Auhumn truth is, though, a lot of these poems are mediocre, and some are just a bit not good I hesitate to say badbut This is understandable, as they were all written between the ages of 13 and 18, which is quite young. In some of the poems, Autumn is simply trying too hard. She inverts words for no apparent reason and wrenches stress.
She forces rhymes where the poem would be very lovely without rhyme.
Most untoucher, she uses archaic language like “thy,” “thou,” “art,” etc, presumably in an effort to sound as deep as Shakespeare. In reality, it just makes the poems seem immature which they are, really. Also, not to get too nit-picky, her sonnets aren’t really sonnets. Still, many of these have decent moments despite these flaws. Autumn is strongest when she writes more modern poetry.
Some of the poems, not surprisingly given the author’s career, could very easily be songs, and I had to read aloud to stop myself from singing in my head. These seem more mature, even though they are often about the same subjects.
Your Sugar Sits Untouched by Emilie Autumn
The lines can get choppier than they probably need to be, but that is my biggest complaint from the more rmilie poetry. There are some absolutely charming poems in this book, but many of them rather miss the mark.
However, even the ones I thought were truly bad had some shining moments. I honestly can’t say I really liked the book as a whole, but I did love some of the poems within. And of course, poetry is so subjective, what I think is immature and cheesy might be what someone emilei finds beautiful, and vice versa.
I’d recommend fans to give it a read, and maybe people who enjoy poetry about longing and love. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. Want to Read saving….

Sugar has kind of grown on me since I first read it. My original review was pretty stupid, so here’s a shorter and vastly improved one.
I don’t like to “judge” poetry, especially some written with such personal intentions, which a lot of this is. I don’t feel that is fair to thoroughly criticize it, as poetry is more of an art than any other kind of writing, and art by nature is deeply subjective. Poetry is an outlet for most people – simpler than a story, and with a certain lack of rules that take out the frustration of writing.
So I’m giving it a good rating, because I did enjoy it mostly, but I’m not going to attempt an in-depth analysis to something I can never truly know the thoughts behind.
Contrary to what English classes will have you believe, most artists don’t intend their work to be hyper-analyzed, anyway. Her poems show a spark of that gothic-ethereal vibe that’s present in her songs, but not always. A few of them are rather so-so, or feel kind of immature the older ones, likelybut like I said, this is totally subjective to the reader, so you may feel otherwise.
None of them I thought were bad or unenjoyable. The majority are wonderful poems. A common complaint, I’ve noticed, is the Fakespearean language she uses on a few. But, you know, why not?

Poetry is the one type of writing where you’re supposed to be able to do what you wanna do. Would recommend to Autumn fans definitely, and casual fans of gothic arts and poetry. I wish I could drain the words I ingested from this book out of my brain and spit them out of my mouth. Makes a whole lot of sense now. They were weak and boring a lot of times–But she was a teenager when she put these words on paper so I’ll have to admit that I skipped some of these poems. I did try to like them, but in the end, I think I only enjoyed three poems.
The subjects were the same a lot of the time, which got boring very fast. Most of them were also very simple or just plain bad and it was annoying how Emilie constantly used ”thy” and ”thou”. I tried to listen to the audio while reading along, but I stopped after five poems as Emilie’s voice got annoying and it was incredibly unclear what she was trying to say I’ll have to admit that I skipped some of these poems.
I tried to listen to the audio while reading along, but I stopped after five poems as Emilie’s voice got annoying and it was incredibly unclear what she was trying to say yes, even though I had the text right before me Though I can’t really say I had expected much of these poems in the first place. Dec 30, Zsofi rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Plague Rats, and those who need some good poetry time.
Love to get into it and try to analyse them sorry, can’t help it, even though it isn’t necessarily good because we should try and avoid dissecting the precious works of writers. May 12, Amelia rated it did not like it Shelves: First things first, the author has this listed at her site as being released inwhich is false. The paperback printed version of this was released inas across the sky and other poems, however, did not contain many of the new poems added to this edition which was released in Which is what I am reviewing, infor the first time she released the audio version with this new version.
Although many never heard of if until it’s digital re-release in because Autumn didn’t re First things first, the author has this listed at her site as being released inwhich is false. Although many never heard of if until it’s digital re-release in because Autumn didn’t really become acknowledged until”Opheliac. Is this important, not really, but to me it is. The writing in ‘s enchant was whimsical and fresh, the few poems on this release taken from ‘s across the sky and other poems, written in her early-mid twenties, at age twenty four, not teens as also wrongly advertised by the author, who states her spoken word to have been performed earlier and by a ballet company I see no evidence where, and so, feel it must just be another lie to try and impress.

Just as is her novel “TAFWVG” allegedly being cited at Oxford university which according to her is in London anyways, they we’re banal with their untoyched to be acknowledged as if “Shakespearean” misusing phrases like “thou, thy” etc, in modern context and extremely cheesy. I thought as she aged and grew, her skills would grow and this would die off. In this release more releasepublished when Emilie was twenty-eight it’s no secret that she was actually born inas Emily Autumn Fritzgesthe new poetry seems just as lacking with originality as to be high schoolish dribble, very tedious, very boring.
Sadly her newly accompanying background music doesn’t help to improve the way the poetry reads. It makes the record sound pretentious and actually aggravates the ears, which are wanting to focus on the unemotional verse, but can’t for a super repetitive harpsichord and strings chiming in throughout.
In truth I hated this release the most. Always, she untoucjed this ugly tendency to fake a more intellectual accent that is so irritating, I had to listen to this record in six parts to complete it. Her sugsr speaking voice would have been fine and would have felt more personal. The whole performance of the poetry in this is oyur forced and dry.
Not like some of the more well known performance poets out there. I love her instrumental work and sung records but any audio book type or literary publication, she has published usually at a later date than claimed, bored the hell out of me. Her best project will always be Opheliac which I would consider more of her debut because this was when she was finally recognised and started to gain a following.
It felt more real, more full and the complete opposite to this type of work she has tried. Which I wouldn’t even give the one star, if given the option.
Jan 11, Roland rated it did not like it. I bought this on iTunes and I have been cringing since. Written between 13 and 18? Funny because I’m pretty sure she was in her twenties and said so at some point I just never got around to buying until now. Have you read Rimbaud and seen how old he was when he wrote his masterworks? What’s Emilie’s excuse for being such a poor, repetitive and tedious writer.
There isn’t one since she is the one who thinks herself a genius follow her or research her career and more you’ll see what I mean. There I bought this on iTunes and I have been cringing since. There is only one poem out of the whole list I liked, one, and that was barely. I have also just read her so called “Novel” equally cringe, the more I follow her work the more I get this feeling.
Her obsession with wanting to be British is also cringe worthy. I’m glad she likes my country but really, stereotyping? Many people like British culture but they don’t insult us with their sycophant wanting to be us.
I am supposed to believe these poems were written of real experiences with the exception of some and that her asylum stay in the other book I wasted my money on was just as real? Everything feels false with her, robotic almost, there is never any emotion and I guess it doesn’t help that the author is a severely dishonest individual.
