Another week has been and gone and that means that it is time for another book review. this week it is the turn of a book that I have been reading very, very slowly over the last few months and that is The Sun And Her Flowers by Rupi Kaur. So, let’s do this!
I really do love Kaur’s poetry. It is always just so evocative and thought provoking. I will admit that I didn’t enjoy this collection quiet as much as her first, but it is still a fantastic collection!
What I love about Kaur’s poetry is how honest it is. She doesn’t shy away from any topic. She talks about racism and sexism, beauty standards, immigration, sexuality, abuse and so much more. she talks about the big issues and I love her for it! her poetry always really makes you think. And I think that that is so important. I really appreciate her honesty. I also love the fact that while tackling these really hard topic and themes, she still manages to have really beautiful writing. All of her poetry is so stunning to read. it is modern poetry at its best!
I love the fact that throughout all of Kaur’s poetry there is an underlying theme of accepting yourself and self-empowerment. Weather that is accepting you race, sexuality, image, body or general self. And I really appreciate that. We live in a world full of criticism. Where we are constantly being told that we are wrong. That we don’t look right, sound right, act right. we need more people like Rupi Kaur telling us that we are right. that we are perfect the way that we are and that we need to accept ourselves and be proud of who we are. I love that Kaur is such a spokesperson for positivity. I feel like The Sun And Her Flowers in particular really focused on this idea and I am so glad that it did.
All in all, I did really collection. I am intrigued to see what Kaur will do next. Her writing has definitely opened up the world of poetry to me and I am very thankful for it.
