Carol Ann Duffy

Five books by Carol Ann Duffy, the Poet Laureate.

  • The Hat

    by Carol Ann Duffy
    Faber & Faber
    Bubbling over with humour and life, the poems in The Hat paint pictures, evoke smells, conjure sounds and encapsulate events both contemporary and historical.
  • Answering Back

    by Carol Ann Duffy
    Picador
    Carol Ann Duffy has invited 50 of her peers to choose and respond to a poem from the past.
  • The World's Wife

    by Carol Ann Duffy
    Picador
    This collection of poems about the women forgotten by history is witty, intelligent and funny, but it also tackles serious themes such as loneliness, jealousy, self-loathing, desire, and domestic tragedy.
  • Rapture

    by Carol Ann Duffy
    Picador
    Rapture is a map of real love, in all its churning complexity; simultaneously direct and subtle, with poems that will find deep resonance in the experience of readers.
  • Feminine Gospels

    by Carol Ann Duffy
    Picador
    With themes of beauty, identity and the body, the book tells tall stories as though they were the gospel truth, and presents new myths as strange and powerful as the old.
