Review:

Carol Ann Duffy is the most humane and accessible poet of our time * Guardian * Duffy is magnificent, grounded, heartfelt, dedicated to the notion that poetry can give us the music of life itself * Scotsman * Carol Ann Duffy is one of the freshest and bravest talents to emerge in British poetry - any poetry - for years. Her project is both subtle and experimental... a contemporary woman poet whose poetic register reaches all the way from a subversive eroticism to a self-conscious regionalism...This new book contains wonderful poems, which extend her lyric range. * Independent *
