Poignant, thoughtful, funny, rich and accessible
These thirty poems vibrate with intense colloquialisms, physicality, energy, freshness and cheek. Many of them are very funny... the best are inventive, subversive and written with great rhythmical and rhyming dash
Carol Ann Duffy is a poet of skill, talent and great heart
The World's Wife is a joyous exuberant book of poems about women usually excluded from myth and history
