“At age 24, Rupi Kaur has been called the voice of her generation.” (USA Today)

“Rupi Kaur has vision beyond her years … Her work is simply but powerfully expressed, and viscerally captures both universal human experience and the particular struggles of a young woman today.” (Huffington Post)

Rupi’s poetry is simple, relatable, gorgeous, and grounded in the everyday experiences of young women. (Rachel Grate, Hello Giggles)

“A must-have poetry collection about healing and hope.” (Bustle)

Rupi Kaur’s first book, Milk and Honey is the poetry collection every woman needs on her nightstand or coffee table. Accompanied by her own sketches, the beautifully honest poems read like the everyday, collective experiences of today’s modern woman. (Erin Spencer, Huffington Post)

Review* – Milk and Honey PDF

When my 8th grader asked for this book I read the reviews and ratings and ordered it because (1) yay, she’s reading and (2) totally on board with women’s empowerment. I did not see anything in the information about the sexually explicit “poems” or graphics sprinkled throughout. There will be a page with something totally appropriate for a middle school/high schooler, then bam! you get hit with a shocking graphic or verse. (I tried to post an example and my review was denied because it was too obscene. Enough said.) Thank God I picked it up out of curiosity so I could explain to her why I was going to shelf it for a couple of years before giving it to her. There are some good messages for girls/women, but on the other hand I may never be able to eat another cantaloupe again. The quality of the writing (meh…) is not the issue here because the shock value screams out so loudly.

Review* – Milk and Honey PDF

I am so disappointed in this book. I finished this book in under 30 minutes. I only liked maybe 3 or 4 poems. Most of the poems sound like the tweets and Facebook statuses of a whiny 14 year-old. Other poems were just uncomfortable to read. I think there is power and something unequivocally beautiful about poems that eloquently speak about pain, the strength to overcome, and the growth that ensues. The poems were awkward, overrated, and underwhelming. I can’t get over the format either. There were poorly drawn sketches next to a many poems. One poem was even placed in-between the sprawled legs of a woman as if the poem was her vag. Also, all the letters were in lowercase which drove me NUTS. It would be worth checking this out in the library before purchasing it.

Poem – Milk and Honey PDF

the first boy that kissed me
held my shoulders down
like the handlebars of
the first bicycle
he ever rode
i was five
he had the smell of
starvation on his lips
which he picked up from
his father feasting on his mother at 4 a.m.
he was the first boy
to teach me my body was
for giving to those that wanted
that i should feel anything
less than whole
and my god
did i feel as empty
as his mother at 4:25 a.m.

it is your blood
in my veins
tell me how i’m
supposed to forget

the therapist places
the doll in front of you
it is the size of girls
your uncles like touching
point to where his hands were
you point to the spot
between its legs the one
he fingered out of you
like a confession
how’re you feeling
you pull the lump
in your throat out
with your teeth
and say fine
numb really

About the Author

Rupi Kaur is a poet, artist, and performer. Her works have taken the literary world by storm. Her second book, the sun and her flowers—an instant global bestseller, is an artistic sibling to her debut, milk and honey—one of America’s bestselling books of 2017.

“i am the product of all the ancestors getting together and deciding these stories need to be told.”

Rupi sees her work as an articulation of this vision. She’s an eternal artist. At the age of five, her mother handed her a paintbrush and said, “draw your heart out.” At seventeen, she happened upon a local open mic night where she performed her first spoken word poem. She fell in love with performance poetry that night. Rupi continued performing across Canada, while building a community of readers and poetry enthusiasts.

While studying at the University of Waterloo, Rupi wrote, illustrated, and self-published her first collection, milk and honey. In the years since, milk and honey has become an international phenomenon. It’s sold over 3 million copies, been translated into more than 35 languages, and landed as a #1 New York Times bestseller—where it has spent more than 100 consecutive weeks. 

“i am the first woman in my lineage with freedom of choice. to craft her future whichever way i choose. say what is on my mind when i want to. without the whip of the lash. there are hundreds of firsts i am thankful for.”

Rupi explores a variety of themes in her work ranging from love, loss, trauma, healing, femininity, migration, and revolution. She’s a storyteller and chronicler—a repository of community and history. There’s a simplicity and nuance to her work that has found a home in the hearts of millions. This magic is captured in her stage performances, which are magnetic musical interactions of poetry, art, and theater. Rupi’s long-awaited second collection, the sun and her flowers, was published in 2017 and debuted as a #1 global bestseller. Milk and Honey PDF

Within the first three months it sold a million copies and was embraced by readers worldwide. She’s a Forbes 30 under 30, an editor of the 2016 Mays Literary Anthology of New Writing from the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge, and one of BBC’s 100 Women. Rupi hopes to continue her artistic exploration through art and poetry—searching for ways to understand and articulate.

i stand
on the sacrifices
of a million women before me thinking
what can i do
to make this mountain taller so the women after me
can see farther
