Who reads poetry these days?  The answer is a million people! Rupi Kaur’s self-published book has sold over a million copies and has been a New York Times best seller for over 52 weeks.  It is modern poetry, from the perspective of the woman of today.  The poems are both feminist and reflective at the same time.  Like any collection of poetry, it has a few gems – thoughts so engaging, words so beautifully crafted – that the words just roll off the eyes, leaving a strong impact.  And then there are those are ordinary and barely poetry.  I am not sure if the huge success if fully deserved – the explicit angle certainly helps.  An interesting read, overall.
