Tương tự như các tập thơ trước của Rupi Kaur mà mình đọc, “Home Body” đề cập đến nhiều vấn đề khác nhau, từ tình trạng tâm lý, những cảm xúc của mỗi cá nhân, cho đến các mối quan hệ độc hại, tình yêu, sắc tộc, sự bòn rút sức lực người lao động của các ông chủ lớn, niềm tin vào bản thân, chủ nghĩa nữ quyền,. She received death threats levied towards her, which led to emotional numbness and a subsequent distancing from social media. Kaur’s verses use metaphors and similes that spatialize and give form to mind, body, and identity, helping to conceptualize how each plays a part in our emotions.Her latest release, “home body” is an organic continuation of her previous two works in style and subject material.

Kaur's poetry has had mixed critical reception: she has been praised for influencing the modern poetry scene, but has also been subject to parody and faced accusations of plagiarism by fellow poets. Domestic and sexual violence were a particular focus of her initial work and rape related trauma became more explicit after Milk and Honey. We should all be 20 and wild and in love and in doubt and chasing what we cannot have, and Kaur captures some of this feeling.She views it as a "one long continuous poem that goes on for 250 pages", "which while birthed in Instagram, is a concept that depends on being bound". She later regretted writing her response, finding widespread disdain affected her mental health, experiencing anxiety that "sort of set in and never really left" and suicidal thoughts for a period of time.

But Kaur also alludes, tellingly, to her own struggles in producing a third book; in fact, she almost entirely devotes a whole quarter of the book to denote her “productivity anxiety”, in “rest”. Hats off to Rupi Kaur for writing about something so incredibly personal and putting her fears, hopes and dreams on these pages as a reminder that things can get better and that despite how we sometimes feel, we are in fact, not alone. With each page turned and every verse started, I yearned, continually, persistently, to fully connect with the work, to feel those heart pangs and nostalgic flashbacks her previous works had incited in me.

These collections have sold over 11 million copies and have been translated into over 43 languages, with milk and honey surpassing Homer’s Odyssey as the best-selling poetry of all time.
