Rupi Kaur is a globally acknowledged Instagram poet. She pens down her subtle verses that talk volumes about love, sex, desire, and womanhood. The readers have also been in speculation on how in just a few lines Kaur sums up the entirety of what she has to say.
Here are things you need to know about her upcoming poetry collection-
Rupi Kaur recently announced the release of her new book titled “Home Body”. Its expected release date is November 17 of this year. This book will be her third collection of poetry and illustrations. Her previous works include “Milk and Honey” and “The Sun and Her Flowers”.
“Home Body” talks about the importance of mutability in life. Kaur is a champion of change and straightforwardness. She takes these qualities in her new book. It is a collection of conversations more than poetry, about acceptance, love, and change.
The poet was about to delay the release of the book due to the unpredictable times at the moment. But, her friends, family, and fans advised her to go ahead with the release. Needless to say, it has come as good news for readers all around the world.
An excerpt from the book:
I dive into the well of my body
and end up in another world
everything I need
already exists in me
there’s no need
to look anywhere else
Milk and Honey and The Sun and her Flowers
Her first two poetry collections became #1 New York Times bestsellers. With more than 8 million copies sold, and still counting, Kaur’s verses gave a new face to modern poetry.
Kaur as a performer
Kaur loves to perform her poetry in front of her fans. She brings her verses to life on stage. She conducted The India Tour wherein she performed in Mumbai, Delhi and a few other citities.
Rising fame as an Insta-poet
Yes, for some, Kaur’s poetry might be a jumble of lowercase letters and sensitive captions. But her verses are far beyond it; to put it into Kaur’s own words: “It’s like a peach. “You have to remove everything and get to the pit of it.”
