Description

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. There were some great and lovely poems in this collection and Tempest's rhythm and feeling for language is amazing. Featuring a vibrant rainbow design, and our super-sized Q logo, you won't find a more stylish way to make a statement.

I enjoy their poems the most when they tell a story, more than when they “just” describe a feeling or situation. They received Mercury Music Prize nominations for both of the albums Everybody Down and Let Them Eat Chaos , and two Ivor Novello nominations for their song-writing on The Book of Traps and Lessons . 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. It’s poems about human relations, and the human condition are underlain and, at times, filled with anger. There were moments of Tempest genius in here but this collection didn't seem to have the same urgency and direction as the likes of Hold Your Own or Let them Eat Chaos.

For now it feels like a process of reaching a sense of identification and acceptance through an undoing and a letting go. 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. 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? 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.

Divisible by Itself and One is the powerful new collection from our foremost truth-teller Kae Tempest. 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. 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.Kae Tempest (pronouns: they/them) started out when they were 16, rapping at strangers on night buses and pestering MCs to let them on the mic at raves. 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. 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. 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.

I always feel galvanised, inspired and in awe after seeing them totally immersed in their craft and passion. 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. Infused with all of their rich lyrical skill and unforgettable imagery, Tempest's bravura collection mines themes of transformation, identity and reaction against conformity with unparalleled insight and verve. Divisible by Itself and One is the powerful new collection from our foremost truth-teller Kae Tempest.The bestselling LGBTQ+ graphic novel about life, love, and everything that happens in between: this is the fifth volume of the Heartstopper series.

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. 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.

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. As always with poetry, some just resonated with me more than others and I can't exactly pinpoint why. They have published plays, poems, a novel, a book-length essay, released albums and toured extensively, selling out shows from Reykjavik to Rio de Janeiro.
