I have very conflicting feeling about this work as a whole. Some of the individual poems are very moving, and I read them several times and really took something from them. On the other hand, multiple ones felt very uninspired and empty, which is a harsh thing to say (especially given the subject matter) but I really felt like there could have been more thought to them.

One of my favorites was the one that began,"did you think I was a city / big enough for a weekend getaway / I am the town surrounding it / the one you've never heard of / but always pass through /..."

But on the page next to that piece, another poem simply reads,"you mustn't have to / make them want you / they must want you themselves"

Sure, this may be true, but I found it (almost annoying) sparse- and there are very many of these short poems in "milk and honey". There was so little substance to them individually.

Then here's my conflict: this is a collection. And, when read together, as almost a novel, these little poems combine to create a more forceful narrative as a WHOLE than they do INDIVIDUALLY. However, part of be just can't ignore the fact that I thought there was a lack of creativity and emotion in some of these poems. The ones I enjoyed I REALLY enjoyed, and vise versa. ( )

Simple, lovely poetry. ( )

Cold take, but this is almost unreadable at times. I'd give 1.5 stars instead of just 1 because some of the poems in here do legitimately have promise and merit, and I think Kaur could develop as a writer.

Keyword: could

A lot of the poems in this collection are almost blatantly copied from concepts scattered around the internet, and given that this was published in 2015 I have a difficult time believing that is a coincidence. Some of them feel so thoughtless and low-effort that it is embarrassing. The few poems that do have merit are unpolished, but I want to believe that there's a diamond in the rough here... somewhere.

milk and honey, edito in Italia da Tre60, è un libro che mi sta dando da pensare. Non per la profondità dei componimenti che raccoglie, temo; anzi, proprio perché ne contiene poca o punta. Kaur è probabilmente la più famosa Instapoet del mondo, cioè una poetessa che scrive poesie destinate alla pubblicazione sui social (in primis, Instagram e Tumblr) e composte di conseguenza per la fruizione rapida e per colpire l’occhio mentre si scrollano distrattamente le varie homepage.

Queste Instapoems sono brevi ed esteticamente piacevoli, scritte con font carini e magari accompagnate da un’immagine o un disegno. Un formato che non esito a definire perfetto per i social, ma che perde molta della sua attrattività sulla carta, dove sembra davvero di leggere delle normali affermazioni affettate con accapo strategici in modo da sembrare poesia. Insomma, a fine lettura lз capisco quellз lettorз che hanno perculato Kaur scrivendo recensioni andando accapo dopo una o due parole.

Però non riesco a liquidare milk and honey come una lettura dimenticabile qualunque perché sono rimasta colpita dalla reazione delle persone a queste poesie. Tra i molti commenti ai post di Kaur, a parte la valanga di cuoricini, ce ne sono diversi sull’importanza che un certo componimento ha avuto nell’ambito del proprio percorso personale, sia stata la messa in parole di un dolore o l’affermazione motivazionale di cui si aveva bisogno in quel momento.

Quindi mi sono chiesta se, oltre alla confezione formato social, queste poesie piacciano anche perché nella loro vaghezza permettono alle persone di riempirle con il significato derivante dalle loro storie personali, come se la poesia di Kaur fosse solo la chiave che apre una porta. Anche se la chiave è un banale pezzo di metallo, dietro quella porta c’è della complessità interessante da affrontare per vivere meglio.

Però, ecco la sostanza sta dietro la porta. Mi sento di consigliare questo libro solo se, facendo un giro sui profili social di Kaur, pensate di aver bisogno delle sue chiavi. ( )

Poetically Beautiful


Sometimes you just need a change of pace. That is what Milk and honey was for me.

Divided into four chapters--the hurting, the loving, the breaking, the healing-- MILK AND HONEY (2015) is a provocative collection of poems meant to empower females. This work may be considered feminist but it is worth every minute you invest in it.

Like many of her critics, I question the literary or poetic merit of Kaur's craft: the traditional elements of poetry as we have been taught to recognize them (alliteration, rhyme, rhythm, simile, metaphor, personification etc.) aren't evident in many of her poems. Her line breaks are at times dubious. At their basic level, some of her poems seem to be renditions of familiar advice or platitudes. In a few cases, some of the poems seem repetitive. And yet, I can admit that her words are impactful, for the seemingly simple way she expresses her ideas resonate on a universal way. I have been writing poetry since I can remember it has always been a way of painting with words for me. This paints pain and healing so beautifully that you can finish this book in one sitting and take things away from it to take with you for a long time. I needed a break and this was a great one
