Whether writing of longing or seduction, of passion, adultery, or simple, everyday acts of love, Carol Ann Duffy perfectly captures the truth of each experience. Love Poems contains some of her most popular poems and, always imaginative, heartfelt and direct, displays all the eloquence and skill that have made her one of the foremost poets of her time.

In the media

Carol Ann Duffy is a poet who covers the stormy waterfront of desire, devotion and despair . . . from distant yearning to wild new passion through absence, boredom and infidelity, to break-ups, grief and solitude . . . As always, she manages the rare feat of building on traditions, forebears, allusions while stirring and shaking the emotions with muscular, unpretentious force.
Independent
Mysterious yet accessible; both truthful and beautiful; this selection is a paean to the power of love and of language’s ability to capture it.
