Home Body by Rupi Kaur is the third poetry book by her, for which I have waited lonnnngggg and I am sure all the other fans have as well. I read the book immediately it was released and OH MY GOD !!!! I just love it so much. The starting is so beautiful. The book is divided into 4 parts - mind, heart, rest, awake. I can literally see how powerful the writing style of the author has grown in this book.
In this we see her own journey and she fighting through her dark days and growing up against it. We see an intimate and integrate relation between the home and the body, hence the name Home Body. In whatever way Rupi Kaur has written her thoughts in this book, the main point I like her books are because they make me FEEL.
Yes, I've heard a lot of arguments on the fact that Rupi Kaur books are not poetry but just her thoughts penned down well, and in this book also we see alot of poems along with some small paragraphs which are merely focusing on her experience as a Sikh in a Foreign State. Some of them focus on Rape, Body Abuse, Depression, Anxiety, Feminism, Immigrant Issues.
But I'll be honest, sometimes its about the words that make you feel the emotions and other minor detailed can be ignored. If you ask me I will ever read any of her future books? My answer is YES, Rupi Kaur's work got me into poetry and I will always cherish her work. Milk and Honey is similar to Home Body, so if you liked Milk And Honey, read this one.
