Milk and Honey Background

Milk and Honey Background

Milk and Honey is a New York Times bestselling book by Rupi Kaur. It is a poetry collection centering around the themes of womanhood, love, loss, and femininity. The book was highly praised for its unique and distinctive narrative grace.

Milk and Honey is written in a nonlinear format. The poems vary on subject matter, but all share common themes of femininity. Khaur writes in a very short, disjointed manner that brings new meaning to her words; she also puts the title of the poem at the end with a dash, or merely signs her name at the end.

The collection was critically acclaimed and became a New York Times bestselling work, selling over a million copies in 3 years. Rupi Khaur herself has become a vehement voice in real life and in social media as an advocate for women of color and feminism.
