Answering Back by Carol Ann Duffy
Book DescriptionCarol Ann Duffy has invited fifty of her peers to choose and respond to a poem from the past. With up-and-coming poets alongside more established names, and original poems alongside the new works they have inspired -- Paul Muldoon, Vickie Feaver and U. A. Fanthorpe, for example, engage with classic works by Philip Larkin, Emily Dickinson and Christina Rossetti -- the result is a collection of voices that speak to one another across the centuries. Teasing, subverting, arguing, echoing and -- ultimately -- illuminating, Answering Back is a vibrant, fascinating and timeless anthology, compiled by one of the nation's favourite poets.
