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

About the Author
“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. 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.

Top international reviews
Die Gedichte in diesem Buch sind wunderschön geschrieben und gehen einem wirklich ans Herz, regen zum Nachdenken an und werfen Fragen sowie Zweifel auf. Es werden zugleich viele Emotionen geweckt die einen wirklich auch fesseln weiterzulesen, die Schriftstellerin Rudi Kaur hat Ihre geschriebenen Zeilen wirklich gut bedacht und auch verständlich geschrieben, dennoch mussten wir stellenweise die sinngemäße Übersetzung googeln :-)
Einziges Manko an diesem Buch ist, das sehr viele Seiten nur mit ein paar Wörtern beschrieben sind (siehe Bilder), daher 1 Stern Abzug in der Wertung. Wahrscheinlich wurde das auch bewusst so gemacht, jedoch gefällt uns das nicht so gut.
Generell würden wir eine Kaufempfehlung aussprechen und es wohl auch wieder kaufen!
Mit der Lieferung durch Amazon war alles perfekt, das Buch in NEU Zustand und in Umverpackung geliefert.
Sollte unsere Rezession für EUCH hilfreich gewesen sein, so würden wir uns freuen, wenn Ihr einen Klick auf den NÜTZLICH Button machen würdet :-)
Habe noch nie eine Rezension geschrieben, aber hier musste es wirklich sein. Einfach zu schön :‘)
If you're new to poetry and are looking for a poetry book to get you started, I would definitely recommend Milk and Honey to you! Easy to read yet packed with emotion and small details, Milk and Honey is sure to pull you into the wonderful world of poetry.
Throughout the book, we are treated to some beautiful illustrations which compliment the poems perfectly.
Give this book a go, even if poetry isn't your thing as you will likely be pleasantly surprised! I passed this book onto one of my best friends who I thought would also benefit from hearing these poems of real, heart wrenching life struggles.
Milk and Honey is one book that will stay with me in my heart for a long time!
My main concern is that this book if being promoted by someone on you tube aimed at 12/13/14 year olds.
I do not consider this modern poetry.
As someone who has worked with adult surivors I would say this is not suitable reading let alone for a teenager.
En mi opinión, "Milk and Honey" es un libro que merece la pena, pero tampoco soy una persona que lea mucha poesía como para poder opinar con propiedad. Se añaden fotos del producto junto a un bolígrafo para apreciar las dimensiones.
[Si te resultó interesante mi comentario me ayudarías mucho votando "sí" en la pregunta de abajo sobre si te resultó útil mi opinión, gracias]
Most of the pieces have their own page and some poems have rough drawings to illustrate the writing. This gives the poetry more depth and highlights specific points. This collection of poetry is achingly beautiful.
