Part of a new generation of instapoets — young poets publishing verse primarily on social media — Kaur, who turns 25 this month, pairs her dreamy, aphoristic poems with doodles reminiscent of those found in the margins of old school books.
Kaur writes about love, sex, rejection and relationships , all topics common on social media, but she also deals with darker material: abuse, beauty standards, racism. Her debut collection, Milk and Honey, has sold 1. But success often comes with a backlash, and for every ardent fan, there is a sneering keyboard critic.

Her trademark fragmented free verse makes her easy prey for online sceptics. Kaur treads a fine line between accessibility and over-simplicity, and often stumbles into the latter. There have also been plagiarism claims , most notably when her second collection, The Sun and Her Flowers, was announced. Nayyirah Waheed , another young poet who posts work on social media, had accused Kaur of ignoring her messages about the similarities between their work.
These claims aside, the truth is that both writers have hit upon a winning formula: rupturing short confessional pieces with erratic line breaks to share hard-won truths. These authors write about shared themes: anger at how the world treats young women, especially women of colour; defiance in the face of dismissal; celebrations of modern femininity.
A rush to accusations of plagiarism undermines the emergence of a movement. In the internet age, it is only right that a poetic movement no longer needs a geographical nexus. Kaur is part of a new creatively fruitful, symbiotic coterie — perhaps this is the new Harlem Renaissance or Bloomsbury Group. So why are so many people so eager to denigrate and dismiss her? The reason might be to do with her mainstream success.
