Division Street (2013) by Helen Mort
From the clash between striking miners and police to the
conflicts in personal relationships, Helen Mort’s debut collection of poetry is
marked by distance and division. Named for a street in Sheffield, Division Street explores the specificities of everyday life: the particularity of names,
the reflections the world throws back at us, the precise moment of a
realization. These poems show us how, at the
site of conflict, a moment of creation and reconciliation can be born.
