Endorsemen Kulya dalam Relung Filsafat

“Nurel Javissyarqi itu api yang tak pernah mati, hidupnya adalah bara yang terus berkobar, konsistensinya jadi energi yang tak pernah habis, teruslah menekuni dan menerangi dunia sastra Indonesia.” (Akhmad Sekhu, sastrawan)

“Yang saya lihat, Cak Nurel itu “Bahasa Perlawanan”. Karya dan komunitas yang diperjuangkannya juga “Bahasa Perlawanan”. Tapi, sebagai fenomena bahasa, ia mati sejak awal, dan menunggu pihak lain untuk menggunakannya.” (Imam Nawawi, Budayawan-Santri Madura)

“Menjadi seorang pegulat pada hal yang dicintai tidaklah mudah. Butuh konsistensi dan keteguhan. Dipenuhi ambisi dan ketekunan dalam menempa dan menempuh jalan. Sebuah panggilan hidup, jalan sunyi dan perjuangan melawan diri sendiri. Untuk sampai pada lentera ufuk timur, yang memberi sinar teduh bagi masyarakat sastra. Pejuang itu nampak pada wajah Nurel Javissyarqi. Meski badai dan kemelut sempat menerjang, mengerami nasibnya, ia selalu gigih dan mandiri. Tak pernah takut bertarung sendiri. Menjadi dirinya yang mencintai kata-kata, yang kelak menjelma mantra sunyi.” (Rakai Lukman, Sastrawan)

“Nurel Javissyarqi seorang sastrawan yang menarik. Tulisannya ceriwis. Tapi keceriwisan yang kerapkali mempersoalkan persoalan yang jarang hinggap di pikiran kita. Ia menyimpan “ketidakpercayaan” yang gawat terhadap “nama besar”. Sehingga sastra Nurel lebih pada suatu sikap “menguji nyali” menantang para pendekar sastra Indonesia dalam sebuah “pertarungan” terbuka dengan menanggalkan “mitos” dan “nama-nama besar”. Sikap itu menarik di tengah kehidupan sastra kita. Nurel membuat jalur baru, dan ia mengajak siapa saja melewati jalurnya itu.” (Taufiq Wr. Hidayat, Penulis, tinggal Banyuwangi)

Translated by Muhammad Muhibbuddin

“Nurel Javissyarqi is a fire that never dies out, his life is blazing ember and his consistency is energy that is never extinct. Explore and illuminate persistly Indonesian literature” (Akhmad Sekhu, a poet)

“I regard Cak Nurel as “a resistence language”. Works and communities that he fights for are also “a resistence language”. However, as a phenomena of language, since the beginning he has been dead and waiting for other person to use it (Imam Nawawi, a santri-humanist from Madura)

“Becoming of a fighter for something beloved is not easy. It needs consistency dan constancy; must have passion and persistence for forging and going through a way. A duty; loneliness and struggling for resisting his self. For reaching an enlightenment of eastern horizon causing to shine shady light to literary community. Thesuch warrior is on Nurel Javissyarqi’s face. Although storm and trouble once hitted and gripped his life, he always be persistent and independent. No fear to fight by himself. To be himself loving words which is going to be a silent mantra in the future.” (Rakai Lukman, a poet in East Java)

“Nurel Javissyarqi is a very interesting poet. His writing is chirping. But, the chirping of Nurel’s works much more questions something that we never think. He conceals serious “mistrust” of “repute” or “greatness”. Because of that, Nurel’s poetic performance tends to be a “test of courage” for challenging well-known Indonesian poets in the open “fighting” area as a effort to overthrow “myth” and “reputation”. This is of course an attractive performance in the midst of our literary life. Nurel created new path, and he invites whoever to pass through his such new way.” (Taufiq Wr. Hidayat, a writer at Banyuwangi)
