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.

For fifty years, she has trained to slay wyrms - but none have appeared since the Nameless One, and the younger generation. 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. 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.

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. 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).

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. 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. The bestselling LGBTQ+ graphic novel about life, love, and everything that happens in between: this is the fifth volume of the Heartstopper series. It’s poems about human relations, and the human condition are underlain and, at times, filled with anger. 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.Divisible by Itself and One is the powerful new collection from our foremost truth-teller Kae Tempest. 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. 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. 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.

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.Their books have been translated into eleven languages and published to critical acclaim around the world. Divisible by Itself and One is the powerful new collection from our foremost truth-teller Kae Tempest. 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.
