Milk and honey book synopsis
Milk and Honey Summary & Study Guide
It is about the experience of violence, abuse, love, loss, and femininity. It is split into four chapters, and each chapter serves a different purpose, deals with a different pain, heals a different heartache. I first heard about milk and honey via social media when I saw my followers posting short excerpts and raving about the inspiration they found. I assumed that, because it reached such a wide audience, the poems would be surface level and lack authenticity. What I found instead was a collection immersed in emotion and experience. Toronto-based writer Rupi Kaur gives a voice to the parts of the mind that are often silent but need attention.
