Product Description

Review

"Helen Mort is among the brightest stars in the sparkling new constellation of young British poets" (Carol Ann Duffy)

"Outstanding… There's a confidence and wit that's rare in a first book, but underlying it all is the bedrock of the north of England, its landscapes and stories. These are poems of passion, risk, tenderness and power" (Michael Symmons Roberts, winner of the Forward Prize 2013)

"There’s been a buzz around Helen Mort for a while, and her debut, Division Street, doesn’t disappoint" (Suzi Feay Independent)

"An excellent first poetry collection -- lucid, intelligent, politically aware, and loyal to the landscape that inspired it." (Blake Morrison Guardian Picks of the Year)

"Mort is a fast-rising star of British poetry… marked by a gritty urban lyricism and a terrific rhythmic vitality" (i)

"A poet of exceptional talent, with a strong clear voice, a sure sense of metre and a poetic sensibility which has an unshakeable attachment to the real world." (Herald)

"Although Helen Mort is just 28, it's surprising that Division Street is her first full collection -- so frequently and impressively does her work appear in magazines and competitions... It's a brilliant debut." (Bill Greenwell Independent)

"A first class first full-length collection" (Tribune)

"Gritty, witty, stylish and totally memorable. Division Street is a book which has something important to say, addressing a wide range of topics with novelty and intelligence." (John Glenday)

"The beauty of her debut collection is partly the sense that it has been written against the clock. Every poem is on the move... the style is satisfyingly Orwellian -- no long words where a shorter one would serve. Nor is she a poetic detective assisting with mysteries. She knows when to let be and let go." (Kate Kellaway Observer)

Accomplished, thoughtful, perceptive, touching... Brilliant!
An engaging and intriguing first collection with a wide range of subjects skilfully handled, yet with a solid baseline grounded in acute observation of relationships and events.

Wow this rising star is amazing. I started out expecting this book to be good due to its reviews, but it reached a part of my soul I didn't realize it could. I can't wait for Mort's next work and will be the first in line to buy it.

This is a brilliant collection! Helen did so well to be nominated for both the Costa prize and the T.S.Elliot prize: she's bound to win in the future! The poems are both witty and gritty and should appeal to both older poetry fans and younger people starting to engage with the genre.
