In the past several years, Rupi Kaur has electrified readers with her slim and powerful debut poetry collection, Milk and Honey. Kaur is a #1 New York Times bestselling author, a fixture on the Amazon Best Sellers page (#6, as I write this), and a worldwide phenomenon who has perhaps single-handedly exposed more people to the immense emotion of poetry than anyone else since the turn of the twenty-first century.
Here Kaur shares five poetry collections that continue to inspire her.
Rupi Kaur is a renowned author, poet, and multimedia artist based in Toronto, Canada. Kaur’s work engages with themes of love, loss, trauma, healing, and femininity, and is both deeply personal and universally relatable. Her work, visually suited for a sharing culture and one that communicates particularly well for platforms like Instagram, have turned her into a viral sensation, first within feminist communities, and then within the media ecosystem at large. Her prose is what will keep her as an important poet for decades to come.
