Divisible By Itself And One by Kae Tempest appears on the Dylan Thomas Prize’s longlist

Divisible by Itself and One, a powerful new collection from our foremost truth-teller Kae Tempest, has been longlisted for the 2024 Dylan Thomas Prize.

Ruminative, wise, with a newer, more contemplative and metaphysical note running through it, Divisible by Itself and One is a book engaged with the big questions and the emotional states in which we live and create.

Throughout the poems, ideas of form – of the body, gender, and in nature – resurface and resolve. 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.
