Hold Your Own

New poetry from a fiercely talented, Ted Hughes Award-winning poet. Kate Tempest's first full-length collection for Picador is an ambitious, multi-voiced work based around the mythical figure of Tiresias. This four-part work follows him through his transformations from child, man, and woman to blind prophet; through this structure, Tempest holds up a mirror to contemporary life in a direct and provocative way rarely associated with poetry. A vastly popular and accomplished performance poet, Tempest commands a huge and dedicated following on the performance and rap circuit. Brand New Ancients, also available from Picador, won the Ted Hughes Award for New Work in Poetry and has played to packed concert halls on both sides of the Atlantic.

Let Them Eat Chaos

Let Them Eat Chaos

Let Them Eat Chaos, Kate Tempest's new long poem written for live performance and heard on the album release of the same name, is both a powerful sermon and a moving play for voices. Seven neighbours inhabit the same London street, but are all unknown to each other. The clock freezes in the small hours, and, one by one, we see directly into their lives: lives that are damaged, disenfranchised, lonely, broken, addicted.

"Yes, the gods are on the park bench, the gods are on the bus, / ""The gods are all here, the gods are in us. / ""The gods are timeless, fearless, fighting to be bold, / ""conviction is a heavy hand to hold, / ""grip it, winged sandals tearing up the pavement -- / ""you, me, everyone: Brand New Ancients."Kate Tempest's words in "Brand New Ancients "are written to be read aloud; the book combines poem, rap, and humanist sermon, by turns tender and fierce.
