Rupi Kaur Reads Timeless from Her Poetry Collection The Sun and Her Flowers
Book Review: Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur
Book Notes: Where we read and condense books down to their main takeaways for creatives. I have always found it hard to read and take in properly because I have been trained to read so fast that I lose all the rhythm. Then another friend recommended it, and another. The works are very raw and emotional, and while they are mainly about love and heartbreak and dealing with abuse and trauma, I was also struck by how many of the pieces applied directly to art and artists. Rupi talks about her mother putting crayons in her hand as a young child and telling her to make sense of the world by drawing, and all the sketches that accompany the poems are her own. They often work very closely with the written word, and give you an extra layer of meaning.
Milk and Honey stylized as milk and honey is a collection of poetry and prose by Rupi Kaur. The collection is about survival. It is divided into four chapters, with each chapter serving a different purpose. Violence, abuse, love, loss and femininity are prevalent themes. Milk and Honey was published on November 4, This poetry collection was sold over 2.
This heartfelt collection of poems hit the shelves November of I saw milk and honey in the store and decided to embrace my poetic side and purchase it. Needless to say, I was baffled with what I found folded into the pages. I was expecting an inspirational slightly tacky read much like how I viewed poetry prior to this. What I found was vulnerability, startling bluntness, and a pure and raw story laced into the pages of Rupi Kaur's poetry.
