Note de l'éditeur

Highly relatable…

Rupi Kaur’s debut collection of poetry has spent over a year on the New York Times bestseller list, a rare feat for poetry, considering how many people profess to not “get” the medium. Don’t be intimated by this collection — Kaur’s poems about womanhood are highly relatable and easily accessible.

Description

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.

    I'm not the biggest reader of poetry. My poetry consumption normally revolves around the collections my brother pushes me to read. I didn't feel much connection to any of the poems. While I normally appreciate interesting formatting and artwork, that aspect didn't capture my attention to any great degree either. I did read this as an ebook, so the format might have something to do with that. While this wasn't a poor collection by any means, I simply didn't feel much connection to it.

    It seems that I am starting to like poetry. I try another poetry book this year and did not enjoy it so much but I like it this one. Is direct, is brutal and beautiful, the poems make you remember your ex, makes you feel the pain of a bad relationship and make you smile about the good moments. you choose your mood and read a part of the book. There is always something that will go to your heart no wonder why it became a bestseller.

    i think this might actually be my favourite book. it's very sweet and simple. don't expect long complicated poems.

    i think it's a book that suits the people who relate to it. it's a personal journey. i can see why some won't like it, but i loved it.

    i would recommend it for later teens to young twenties. i would also recommend it for those who know they like poetry.

    This was just everything. Rupi Kaur gives everything in this book. There is beauty and ugliness, sweetness and sadness, pain and healing. This book makes you feel happy, sad, angry, empowered, and thoughtful all at once. I can see myself in these pages. I can see people I know in these pages. I am reading friends, loved ones, people I love, and hate; people I miss and those I see everyday. I see the author in these words, and she is beautiful and brilliant.Read this book.Poetry is a fairly new thing I'm exploring and this book has helped me to appreciate and love it a little more.

    This short read packs a powerful punch. A must-read for anyone and everyone.

    you are snakeskin
    and I keep shedding you somehow
    my mind is forgetting
    every exquisite detail
    of your face
    and letting go has
    become the forgetting
    which is the most pleasant and saddest thing
    to have happened

    I'm not usually a poetry fan, but this book spoke to me. Very much a women's perspective on relationships and sexuality and gender. Try it, I think you'll like it.
