Something you might not know: 2017 was a great year for poetry and an even better year for poetry sales. That’s pretty rare in America—and we have a Canadian to thank for it. That would be Rupi Kaur, whose Milk and Honey ($9, amazon.com) and The Sun and Her Flowers ($10, amazon.com) have flown off the shelves of bookstores all across the country thanks to their pithy, poignant poems and accompanying illustrations. Kaur’s work, which she initially published on Instagram, has struck a real chord. But she’s not the only poet creating vital, accessible poetry right now—and she’s certainly not the first, either. Here are seven collections to help you branch out once you’ve finished your Rupi binge.
