About this deal

I seen them perform some of these poems in person this week and if you have the chance to do the same I can’t recommend enough. Stories of transformation hold a central place in Tempest’s work, their best to date; here, the poet considers the changes that are sometimes required to be oneself.

It’s poems about human relations, and the human condition are underlain and, at times, filled with anger. Kae Tempest has changed their pronouns since I read their last collection, which I massively enjoyed.

The abstractness and symbolism in many instances obscures the message and meaning of the poem despite the power of the language used by the poet. The long-awaited second instalment in Samantha Shannon's Sunday Times and New York Times-bestselling series Tunuva Melim is a sister of the Priory. Divisible by Itself and One is the powerful new collection from our foremost truth-teller Kae Tempest. They received the Ted Hughes Award for their long-form narrative poem Brand New Ancients and the Leone D’Argento at the Venice Teatro Biennale for their work as a playwright.

Divisible by Itself and One is the powerful new collection from our foremost truth-teller Kae Tempest. There were some great and lovely poems in this collection and Tempest's rhythm and feeling for language is amazing. Sehr spannend ist es dabei nachzuvollziehen, wie sich im Detail beim Übersetzen entschieden wurde, bestimmte Ausdrucksweisen umzusetzen. The bestselling LGBTQ+ graphic novel about life, love, and everything that happens in between: this is the fifth volume of the Heartstopper series. I always feel galvanised, inspired and in awe after seeing them totally immersed in their craft and passion.For now it feels like a process of reaching a sense of identification and acceptance through an undoing and a letting go.

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Their debut novel, "The Bricks That Built The Houses", sold in a highly competitive auction to Bloomsbury and was published in territories including the UK, US, France, Holland and Brazil in Spring 2015.I think I will read whatever Kae Tempest will publish, even though the poems in this collection didn’t speak to me as much as their previous work. Everyone needs to hear and feel the raw sometimes, and these collections always manage the reflection without the melancholy - more stating as a fact but without burying the pain purposefully deep or out of reach. As with most poetry collection, there were some poems I liked better than others and I do think I like some of Tempest's other works better, but this was still very good and very powerful! Divisible by Itself and One is also a book about human form, the body as boundary and how we are read by the world. Ruminative, wise, with a newer, more contemplative and metaphysical note running through, it is a book engaged with the big questions and the emotional states in which we live and create.

Even in cases where the poem itself didn't touch me as much as others, it still had a melodic flow that made it very enjoyable to read. Questions of integrity - hence the prime number of the title - are addressed in direct, affecting terms: how can we be true to ourselves while under constant pressure to conform? A new poetry collection from Britain's foremost truth-teller, in Divisible by Itself and One Kae Tempest masterfully steers a path between their more public-facing performance and dramatic work and the contemplative voice that came to the fore in Running Upon the Wires.The 103 third parties who use cookies on this service do so for their purposes of displaying and measuring personalized ads, generating audience insights, and developing and improving products. Brand New Ancients", their self-performed epic poem to a live score, won the Ted Hughes Award 2012 and the Herald Angel at Edinburgh Fringe. Tempest uses words like a time traveller, taking the reader into fragments of their own lives, successes and heartbreaks. Taking its bearings – and title – from the prime number, Divisible by Itself and One is concerned, ultimately, with integrity: how to live in honest relationship with oneself and others. The Loop" was the standout, and the final poem, a "Love Song" dedicated to the LGBT+ community was a powerful and beautiful way to close the collection.
