My Star Rating:
milk and honey is a collection of poetry and prose about survival. It is about the experience of violence, abuse, love, loss, and femininity. It is split into four chapters, and each chapter serves a different purpose, deals with a different pain, heals a different heartache. milk and honey takes readers through a journey of the most bitter moments in life and finds sweetness in them because there is sweetness everywhere if you are just willing to look.
My Review: (Vague Spoilers)
This poetry collection is short and bitter-sweet. Eye opening and heart-breaking but well written and nicely organized – it doesn’t shy away from the harder topics that most consider taboo.
I liked the organization of the free-verse poems and good for fans of feminist poetry like “The Princess Saves Herself In This One”.
I’d recommend it.
