The World’s Wife
by Carol Ann Duffy
Stunningly original and haunting, the voices of Mrs. Midas, Queen Kong, and Frau Freud, to say nothing of the Devil’s Wife herself, startle us with their wit, imagination, and incisiveness in this collection of poems written from the perspectives of the wives, sisters, or girlfriends of famous—and infamous—male personages.
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.”
