Milk and Honey: Modern Poetry about Women

Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur is a collection of poetry about that examines growing up, love, and what it means to be a women. I personally love her poems that are about what it means to be women as it felt like I was looking back at my own musings and dialogues I have had with my female friends in a artistic format. It shows the strength in femininity, and the inherent vulnerability that comes with it. The contradiction we, as women, face when dealing with our bodies.

The only down side of this book is that there is only lower case lettering used, which gives me anxiety. Anxiety probably related to my strict English teaching as a child. So, I sometimes get distracted by my need to take a red pen to fix the grammar especially in the paragraph poems. If these items were fixed then I believe the book could be a even more stunning creation without any detractions.

I can easily tell why this poetry book became one of the most popular books when it was released. It was beloved by critics and regular readers alike. Everyone was sharing sections of it on the social media and inspired young writers to become more interested in poetry. It has become a pathway to introduce new audience into a literary form that is less popular, poetry. So grab a copy and drive into Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur.
