Let’s play a game called “how many basic tumblr
Instagram art hoe things can I fit into [laughs] HUH One Shot At One Time” errmm okay- fairy
lights? check. The Great Wave poster? not quite visible but it’s there. Check. Kanken?
Check. Short girl? Check. Overalls? Yes Errrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrmmmmmm Round glasses!Er- well who could forget- there we go ladies and gentlemen we have the winning shot right here! welcome to
the modern world this is a poem. Hi! It’s Divya G What does the g stand for? It is a truth universally acknowledged that a
single man in possession of an enter key is a poet hi I’m a side channel that is
also a main channel I like to mix aesthetics with social commentary on
things that are important to me in life and to the world… like memes. HAH unsubscribe HAH some people call it modern poetry some people call it art some people call it
tumblr-insta poetry and some people call it my caps lock is broken and no longer
works but one thing is for certain you can’t complete your insta look without a
copy of milk and honey, your kanken bag in the background, and you sweet potato
avocado toast with chia seeds on top what??? (that’s not me hahahahaha) the princess saves herself in this one….
wonder what it’s about? By Amanda Lovelace. Did you know that Amanda
Lovelace was in college when she published this? College. Girl was doing
bits. Lovelace uses the [pretentious voice] extended metaphor in this one of your classic fairy tale
story of the princess locked up in a tower throughout sections of the books
and how it kind of aligns with this parts and aspects of her own life. In
terms of themes and topics for this one we have: grief, motherhood, familial
relationships, sisterhood, there’s a lot death, love and what it means to be a woman. Lovelace likes to manipulate the form of her poetry both to render the
aesthetics but also just to kind of capture the visual form and meaning of
her poetry if that makes sense some people call it overuse of the Enter key 🙂
in my opinion my back side- my behind- my tush is firmly planted on de fence. I
don’t know why I’m sitting on a fence but I’m sitting on it and my butt- my
butt’s not moving. My favourite poems in this anthology centers mostly around
grief and also this tumultuous mother/daughter relationship that she has.
Grief clung to her like an old, itchy, faded, ill-fitting, hand-me-down dress. Death wound itself around her bones like a piece of red ribbon. Months after my
mom died I found the book she was reading last, with the yellowing receipt
still tucked inside marking her place and it finally hit me. You’ll never get
to finish this particular book you will never get to start or finish another
book ever again. You’ll never get to see me graduate from college, you will never
meet the love of my life, you will never be there for my wedding, you will never
read these words, we will never ever ever sit on the back porch and swap go
stories over steaming coffee mugs ever ever ever again. The isolated words and,
as my past English teacher would, say [pretentious accent] EN-JAAAM-B-MON (enjambment) [laughs] reads like a mental pause like,
with each line compounding upon the previous, the lack of spaces feels
uncomfortable and tight especially compared to the poem literally opposite
of it. Like the words themselves winding around, like taking space of the page –
mimicking how death itself encompasses the speaker’s entire body or life. Lovelace’s bitter regret is evident in this poem like if you combine like the anaphora
with declarative “you will never get to” you with a verb, I feel like it really
puts across this of finality of life The tone in this section is
somber and regretful towards this childhood so consumed with death that
the author never really got a chance to live. There’s this poem in particular
right and-this-like- “fill-in-the-blank: poetry is, space, anything you want it to be” and
it makes you question: [pretentious old man voice] what… is… poetry? Another problem that a lot of
people have with milk and honey and the princess saves herself in this one is
that it’s written in free verse in such simple
language that it almost doesn’t even feel like poetry it kind of just feels
like statements like some of these statements could be tweets! [broken spanish] Par ejemple (por ejemplo), [coughs] [clears sinuses] food is not the enemy society is everyone I love leaves :’ ( If that wasn’t your facebook status in 2010
when David Tennant regenerated into Matt Smith don’t even @ me though. And with
the love poems if you can’t relate ( like me ) then it comes across as a little bit
cringy. Cuz you know…. I can’t relate it’s a lot darker than the princess saves
herself in this one. Kaur explores cultural identity especially in relation
to our family, sexual abuse, she explores rape, she explores kind of what
it means to be a woman in the modern century and how to define womanhood. At
the same time…. simultaneously Kaur uses a lot more imagery in her writing but it
also suffers from Obvious Statement Syndrome [fake laugh] Stay, I whispered as you shut the door behind you no I whispered as TFL took £5.60
from my oyster card balance [deep sniff] the way they leave tells you everything I was Dolce and Gabanna but you were on a budget – Divya g the point is the statements can
be quite simple. In one way it’s accessible and you don’t have to do too
much thinking to find the meaning it’s quite obvious, it’s quite blunt but on the
other hand the feminism- people praised this book for feminism in my opinion
like the things she was saying weren’t very revolutionary they were
kind of just obvious facts that a lot of people in our generation agree with I’m
not saying poetry you know has to be revolutionary, right? Cause a lot of people
do connect with it. I’m just saying that these books were like a Celebration box
yeah and I was getting a lot of Bounty but I just wanted the Maltesers. Some
people complain about the ommittance of caps locks and letters in her writing. I feel like that’s not really
an issue because if anything, it’s really more of an ode to Gurmukhi scripture
and if anything the lack of capital letters makes the words flow a lot more
easier. If anything, it makes her message seem more vulnerable and just like more-
it’s just-…… JUST MORE RAW, MELISSA. My favorite poem is Woman of Color so “our
backs tell stories no books have the spine to carry” and it’s really the
comparison between the daily burdens and struggles that we have to face are so
great that words are inadequate in capturing this essence. They’re [the poems] evidently
personal right and they deal with a lot of heavy topics but the problem for me is
sometimes both form and content are missing. Forget Madeleine [McCann] what- what
am i reading? In the words of my actual brother: if I got any of these poems in
my GCSE unseen poetry exam I’d be screwed because there is nothing to say (That was peak) (So harsh. Wow) (Roasting is in our blood) whether you like this form of confessionalist free-verse or not I do admire the fact that they’re kind of challenging
the gatekeepers of poetry sometimes poetry can be so intimidating for people
because there’s this air of haughtiness it’s intimidating right and at least
these authors creating poetry that’s accessible for more people. It’s kind
of like poetry for people who don’t like poems and that is and h20 hydration (because there’s no tea)
okay so these are the two mainstream ones let’s talk about some other
underrated quote unquote tumblr insta poetry- right, yeah we got these – um
Graffiti by Savannah Brown I’ll tell you straight up that I am biased. I have no
shame. I love Savannah Brown. Savannah Brown, as a poet, as a writer,
she’s so lyrical with the way that she writes okay like her poetry is so
enriched with with images and metaphors some people might think away this is
just John Green pretentious angsty teen well if it’s John Green pretentious angsty teen then so be it! I dig it! We have a skinny legend. These poems are written at the
very cusp of adulthood in this weird black hole between being a child and
being not. I feel like these poems are very personal, in the sense that Savannah
wrote this for herself. She didn’t write this for other people to read, right? When
I read these poems I get this feeling that we’re kind of looking into her
trapped inside her own headspace and battling this
sense of existentialism. Graffiti I feel like Savannah is like [mwAH] the cream of the
crop molto bene in terms of spoken poetry, right? If you
feel a weird sense of disconnect when you’re reading the poem, just honestly,
just go to youtube look at her poetry playlist and just listen to her speak. I
feel like when she speaks it just adds a whole another dimension okay? I’m just
transported into another era. I don’t even know who I am anymore I wasn’t a fan
of all of the poetry but my favourite one was “moles don’t think about space or small talk” as the poem progresses Brown mimics the kind of overthinking process
on page through both form and content right I like it cause I related to it. You
know? Moles are peaceful creatures that live a simple existence, right? They’re hidden underground and sometimes we also want to hide within ourselves and from
external society and hide from ourselves even like, they don’t have this
narcissistic need to be significant in life or have the pressure to matter or
be someone, even when they live on this vast earth. Unless they’re the Underminder. Ladies and gentlemen welcome to our last book Bottleneck Dreams by Nhi The Poet and
it is the one and only book that has CAPITAL LETTERS What a rare sight indeed. [Oh my god vine audio & Noah Centineo saying whoa whoa whoa] The poetry in this has a very whimsical
youthful wanderlust stargazing type of essence to it. The primary focus for this
collection of poems is memories and feelings attached with you know love of
our youth. Still cannot relate. Okay, hear me out. This sounds kind of weird but these
are the type of books that you read if you like Colors by Halsey. Ok so, for me, Cheers resonated with me because it
speaks about teenagers’ methods of escapism. Right. Whether it’s drugs or
alcohol or other means we crave short-term euphoria and we
glorify lives of like reckless adolescence. You know life is short and
these thrills that we’re seeking they’re kind of empty and they’re kind of
meaningless. Like, I like it because it balances, while there’s a certain beauty to
these experiences like they don’t last forever. Your snapchat story’s gonna dissipate in
24 hours boo. I would like to know your opinions on modern poetry like do you read
it and do you think talk is overrated?
I had such a good upload schedule right for like a month and I have three really
big projects for YouTube oh and they’re not they’re not that big projects it’s just you
just it’ll take me a long ass time to edit but I honestly I’d rather spend
longer making a nice video for you guys then just uploading trash each week
Long story short, I’ll try and upload on a Sunday … or a Friday or a Saturday every week but I can’t promise because I have uni commitments. So my upload schedule is going to be sporadic but we all knew this.. sis we been knew okay So [Viktor: AMAZING] SUBSCRIBE! Bye! I’m going to sleep now. when I’ll see you again.. hate that
song it is a truth universa-nally g–g-g-g- Universi-gh-gh-g yeah it is the truth
universally- universa-nally WHAT!? the entire summer I’ve been sat on my
computer right and I feel like I’m just turning into a vulture just look at this
posture like nerd neck and the fact that I’m doing computer science just doesn’t
help this at all how’d you pronounce- HEH?! i just want the
word fam. you’ll have to excuse the wind cause honey we got a big storm coming. Now that’s a dead reference. [Door slam] Kaur oh my what the how did the door just close? When I closed it over Fam, there’s a ghost in this house like

  1. Self proclaimed queen of analysing.
    "Writer: the curtains were blue
    Me: the curtains represent his immense depression and lack of will to carry on.
    What the writer meant: the curtains were blue"
    Didn't get top grades in English Lit for no reason.

    What do you guys think of these types of poems? Are they your style?

  2. When I was

    a young boy

    my father

    took me into the city

    to see a marching band

    He said son when

    you grow up

    would you be

    the savior of the broken

    the beaten

    and the damned?

  3. Dude even though translations don't give 100% the same feel, you should check out authors like Fernando Pessoa, Ferreira Gullar, Drummond de Andrade, João Cabral de Melo Neto, they are really fucking good brazilian authors; maybe you could do a review about them afterwards

  4. I enjoy poetry told in metaphors and paragraphs. My criteria is basically it has to rhyme (or flow) or be a full paragraph of creative writing

  5. that’s so disrespectful with the authors, OMG. did you read anything about rupi kaur? her experience with life and stuff? you should. you really should read before you say that “milk and honey” as well “the sun and her flowers” are basic poetry.

  6. I write poetry, and more times than I can count, I wonder if I should shift my style to tumblr/insta poetry because, well, I'm struggling here

  7. does this annoy anyone else. people create poem or quote accounts. and every single post is an overused google image from tumblr or pinterest.

  8. Not justifying the poem but like what if the poem that said "food is not the enemy. Society is." Is actually about an eating disorder?

  9. I think the fun of poetry is that you get to look for the meaning in what the poet is saying and these books just don’t do that but regardless I like SOME of what they have to say

  10. In Arabic we call those kind of writings (as in the first two books mentioned); "Khawater" not poems..they are like grandkids of poetry but they are just not poems sort of like poetry marries journaling and have kids then grandkids don t know how to describe it better I mean isn t there a word for it in English?

  11. Honestly "milk and honey" pissed me off cause if that's poetry I don't know wtf I've been doing spending weeks and months on 1 poem like holy cow I was so irritated reading that stuff!

  12. tbh I don't know why 'poets' like rupi Kaur's works are considered 'good poetry', in my opinion, they're just going for the aesthetic look and there isn't really good substance. they're just cramming like five words and making it sound 'aesthetically' pleasing, and there isn't like a deeper and more raw meaning behind it. idk this is prob alr a bs comment but I prefer lang leav :/

  13. I do agree with what you said. But as someone whose channel is about literature and English and stuff, you should know that two superlatives don't come together.

    At 8:45 you say ' more easier ', which is grammatically wrong.

    It's either 'much easier' or simply 'easier'.

  14. In my opinion I honestly don't believe that this is real poetry at all because it's not traditional poetry

  15. I loved this video. Frankly though it scared the shit out of me when that music was playing and I didn't sense that it was going to happen. I could barely hear you speaking. I thought it was another tab, LOL. No worries, peace & love. Anna.

  16. I enjoyed your insight and i feel enlightened in a sense, though i had subscribed at the David Tennant reference. lol

  17. Art is a birth name of beauty
    And poetry is its native tongue
    We learn it’s language
    And we write books
    To sing
    And tell
    And share the words
    Of beauty itself

    so we can hear its voice once more

    It’s kinda fun, actually. Call me pretentious, but there is something relaxing and intriguing about modern poetry.

  18. I just finished gcse English literature and am planning on taking it at a level and your interpretations make me feel like I know nothing

  19. poetry is very free so dammit , If she wants to write 3 words , that’s art right there . Art cannot be defined. Art is expression . Only true artists would understand

  20. Found out about her
    Understood all
    Creating poems out of one sentences
    Kaur is called a poet

    -Have you read the first lines of this entry?

  21. These are probably gonna be bad, lol. I'm sorry

    I was
    Harry
    But
    You had no
    Style

    I was
    One direction
    But you were
    Zayn

  22. black
    white
    green
    or blue

    show off your true colours

    flamingo
    o
    o
    o
    if you’re multicoloured
    that’s cool too

  23. "These books were like a Celebration box and I was getting a lot of Bounty but I just wanted the Maltesers" This sentence has more colourful imagery than the entirety of Milk and Honey lol

  24. Omg thank you so much for making this video. My bf and I love to write poetry and we often LOL at the most simple statements made but get thousands and thousands of likes. –__

  25. Hello I am a new poet and I have a book called Unleashed! My instagram is _sydspoetry if you want to see my poems!!

  26. Oh, I had wondered if,
    And here I find it,
    Comments become
    Poems
    Become comments
    Become poem…
    Seriously, this is
    seriously
    GOOD!

  27. Hi really liked the say you reviewed these. Could you review my poems as well. You can find a few on my Instagram @apoets_notebook . I am also writing one down here, just to give you a feel of the kind of poetry i write.

    Everybody dies

    Everything else is lies

    This is the only truth

    There is no surprise

    No matter where you hide

    Death will come and find you

    It was meant to be

    It will remind you

    It won't hear you scream

    It won't wipe your tears

    It will stand and watch you

    It will wait for years

    When your time finally comes

    It will come and get you

    Everybody dies

    So I will let you

  28. People only read these cause it’s on Instagram. :/ Atleast that’s why the ‘popular’ girls in my class did, it’s nice to see someone who actually understands the meaning and not cause it’s trendy.

  29. “From the wounded soul, comes poetry and music. In return, music and poetry heals the soul.”
    I found this quote in a book I ordered on Amazon titled, “Midnight Writings by a Distant Mind Lost in Time” It was a wild read. It’s nothing like Milk and Honey, which was a good thing.💜

  30. Wow this is great and well done I would love to know what you think of my poetry but I'm also scared at the same time thank you for sharing.

  31. I regrettably gave this a chance. Its was Excruciating. I hated it so much I looked up how to spell Excruciating.

  32. As someone that has read Milk and Honey ,I must say it may be trendy for "Art hoes"to have it or for "Aesthetic" it really does dive into many dark topics such as abandonment,sexual assault, heartbreak,abuse, ect. It was a vary good book and I feel should be more appreciated for diving in to such topics.
