  • 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
