by Carol Ann Duffy
From the sadness of Elizabeth I, looking back on her long and powerful but lonely life, to the travails of a woman whose work is literally never done as she continues to trawl the seas to feed her billion offspring, to a movingly lyrical reflection on the beauty of a growing child, Carol Ann Duffy explores in this volume the myriad components of women’s lives and loves through the crystallizing prism of poetry.
Poet Carol Ann Duffy stated in an interview that when she’s fallen in love “it hasn’t really mattered if it was a man or a woman.”
