Author: Kate Tempest
Kate Tempest is one of the most exciting and innovative performers to have emerged in spoken-word poetry in many years; her dramatic poem Brand New Ancients won the prestigious Ted Hughes Prize for innovation in poetry. Tempestâe(tm)s wholly unique blend of street poetry, rap and storytelling âe" combined with the spellbinding delivery of an open-air revivalist âe" has won her legions of followers all over the UK. Her remarkable stage presence is wholly audible in this poem, a spoken story written to be told with live music.
Brand New Ancients is the tale of two families and their intertwining lives, set against the background of the city and braided with classical myth. Here, Tempest shows how the old myths still live on in our everyday acts of violence, bravery, sacrifice and love âe" and that our lives make tales no less dramatic and powerful than those of the old gods.
Very Good - This is a preloved book, but it is in pristine condition. There should be no yellowing, no foxing, and no writings of any kind on the pages. This book is good as new — lucky you!
