I think my favorites were "Mountain road at midnight, Crete" and "The loop", although there were quite a few that made me underline lines like crazy and subsequently lead me to stare at my bedroom ceiling for half an hour (which is my preferred outcome for reading poetry). There were some great and lovely poems in this collection and Tempest's rhythm and feeling for language is amazing. I read Kae Tempest 's novel The Bricks That Built the Houses a while ago and it is still up there with my favourites.

I enjoy their poems the most when they tell a story, more than when they “just” describe a feeling or situation. It is more powerful than a surrender and it becomes celebratory but doesn't shy away from pain and anger and the rawness of the unshaping process. 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.kae has such a kind and humble writing that digs all of our hidden parts the feelings we reject the face we see in the mirror.

Kae Tempest has changed their pronouns since I read their last collection, which I massively enjoyed. For fifty years, she has trained to slay wyrms - but none have appeared since the Nameless One, and the younger generation. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Their books have been translated into eleven languages and published to critical acclaim around the world.For now it feels like a process of reaching a sense of identification and acceptance through an undoing and a letting go. 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. 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. Featuring a vibrant rainbow design, and our super-sized Q logo, you won't find a more stylish way to make a statement.
