About this deal

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. There were some great and lovely poems in this collection and Tempest's rhythm and feeling for language is amazing.

I enjoy their poems the most when they tell a story, more than when they “just” describe a feeling or situation. Tempest uses words like a time traveller, taking the reader into fragments of their own lives, successes and heartbreaks.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! 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. Divisible by Itself and One is also a book about human form, the body as boundary and how we are read by the world. 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. Sehr spannend ist es dabei nachzuvollziehen, wie sich im Detail beim Übersetzen entschieden wurde, bestimmte Ausdrucksweisen umzusetzen.

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 always feel galvanised, inspired and in awe after seeing them totally immersed in their craft and passion.

The one thing that I find impressive about all of Kae Tempest's work is the nice rhythm that carries through their poetry. 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).

The bestselling LGBTQ+ graphic novel about life, love, and everything that happens in between: this is the fifth volume of the Heartstopper series. Groaning in the empty garden in a moment that lasted till now, the almighty swore they'd never live again. 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.

The million copy bestseller, A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara, is an immensely powerful and heartbreaking novel of brotherly love and. 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.
