Hand in Hand
Carol Ann Duffy
In Hand in Hand, Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy has selected thirty-six of the best world poets writing today and invited each of them to select a love poem written by the opposite sex which will appear opposite their own love poem. The poets have been encouraged to look to other centuries for their choice as well as to our own time. Simon Armitage, Hugo Williams, Billy Collins, Jackie Kay, Don Paterson, Jo Shapcott sit alongside Stevie Smith, Seamus Heaney, Elizabeth Bishop, John Donne.This is a wonderful, heartwarming collection for Valentine's Day and for every other day of the year.
