Feminine Gospels by Carol Ann Duffy

Book Description

A new collection of poems ranging over the experience of women historical and imagined, real-life and larger than life from the award-winning author of The World's Wife. From the sadness of Elizabeth I, looking back on her long and powerful but lonely life, to the travails of a woman whose work is literally never done as she continues to trawl the seas to feed her billion offspring, to a movingly lyrical reflection on the beauty of a growing child, Carol Ann Duffy explores in this volume the myriad components of women's lives and loves through the crystallizing prism of poetry. Sometimes erotic and personal, sometimes historical and grand, sometimes witty and full of surprises, the poems in Feminine Gospels are all beautifully crafted works that are as varied in style as the poems in Duffy's earlier acclaimed volume The World's Wife . Together, they will challenge and entertain as they explore the fullness of the female condition through their author's unique poetic voice. "
