Rupi Kaur is 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. Many recent stories about her work talk about her as an " Instagram poet " with, from my perspective, equal parts bewilderment and snootiness, but her terse, beautiful words have reached far beyond social media. Kaur's first volume of poetry, milk and honey , launched her to 1 on the New York Times bestseller list. Today, a few weeks after its publication, the sun and her flowers sits at 2 on the New York Times' combined print and e-book fiction list , just below a little-known author named Dan Brown. The Amazon Books editors chose the sun and her flowers as one of October's best books of the month--the only volume of poetry to have gained that distinction in several years. We spoke with Kaur about her new book, her other creative projects, and what poems her readers are gravitating towards. Rupi Kaur: Perhaps that I am touching on so many more themes in the sun and her flowers than I did in milk and honey.
If you've been on Instagram's explore page for any amount of time, chances are you've seen Rupi Kaur's poetry , either from Rupi herself or a fan's regram of her work. Of course, even without fans reposting her work to their own feeds, Rupi's reach is considerable on its own. The writer, who self-published her first poetry book, Milk and Honey in , has over 1. And her work, which is characterized by short, punctuation-less phrases and sparse drawings, inspires comments from the second she posts a new poem. She's received her share of criticism about her work and its message. For her part, Rupi tells Teen Vogue that as the conversation surrounding her poetry has grown, she's focused more and more on the work itself, and less on what critics and commenters have to say; she doesn't want their opinions to influence how she creates. Now she has a new book out — The Sun and Her Flowers , which features five new chapters of poems on loss, love, loneliness, and identity, all with nature themes and simple phrases.
