Review of Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur

Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur

Review: This was among the fist couple of poetry books that I happened to pick up lately, and I am so glad that I did. Mostly because it was crazy amazing to read this style of poetry. I do not think I have read any other poetry that flowed and twisted itself into a weird but oddly comforting format for conveying itself before. Even now, when I look back into milk and honey, I read every poem differently then how I did the first time. I also found out that my younger sister bought this same book, when she got her first two poetry books. I guess great minds really do think alike.

Summary: This exclusive hardcover edition includes a new foreword by the author

Milk and Honey is a collection of poetry and prose about survival. About the experience of violence, abuse, love, loss, and femininity.

The book is divided into four chapters, and each chapter serves a different purpose. Deals with a different pain. Heals a different heartache. Milk and Honey takes readers through a journey of the most bitter moments in life and finds sweetness in them because there is sweetness everywhere if you are just willing to look.
