Milk and Honey
Rupi Kaur voices the different vital experiences of someone who believes herself to have been broken through both verse and prose. We follow, if not Kaur herself, the narrative voice of someone who believes themselves to be broken beyond repair. There are multiple themes explored throughout the collection, but some that I would like to highlight would be self-love, toxicity in relationships both with others and with yourself, emotional manipulation and even rape. In terms of style, Rupi Kaur is famous for having her very own distinctive style, so how on earth could I do it justice in this review? It is heart-wrenching while empowering, and shocking while seemingly familiar. Her musicality and rhythm are addictive and her narrative poems are probably some of the best examples of the current trend of free verse in poetry.
