Hold Your Own, 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.

Review:

One of the brightest British talents around. [Tempest's] spoken-word performances have the metre and craft of traditional poetry, the kinetic agitation of hip-hop and the intimacy of a whispered heart-to-heart, Guardian

[Tempest] enjoyed a remarkable double triumph in being shotlisted for the Mercury Music Prize on the same day as being named a Next Generation Poet, Guardian

In mesmerising rhyme and galloping rhythm, her passion for the classics collides with urban street slang, social observation, consumerism and the concerns of contemporary youth, Observer

Kate Tempest proves poetry has a place in pop . . . [Tempest] has made history, transcending the line between poetry and music, Telegraph

Book Description:

New poetry from a fiercely talented, Ted Hughes Award-winning poet.
