Division Street

by Helen Mort
£12.00   paperback  Vintage (Chatto & Windus) (2013)

Division Street by Helen Mort SHORTLISTED FOR THE T.S. ELIOT PRIZE 2013
 
SHORTLISTED FOR THE COSTA POETRY AWARD 2013
 
The much-anticipated debut collection from award-winning poet and rising star, Helen Mort.
 
‘A stone is lobbed in ’84,
hangs like a star over Orgreave.
Welcome to Sheffield. Border-land,
our town of miracles...’
– ‘Scab’
 
From the clash between striking miners and police to the delicate conflicts in personal relationships, Helen Mort’s stunning debut is marked by distance and division. Named for a street in Sheffield, this is a collection that cherishes specificity: the particularity of names; the reflections the world throws back at us; the precise moment of a realisation. Distinctive and assured, these poems show us how, at the site of conflict, a moment of reconciliation can be born.
