Carol Ann Duffy - Dorothy Wordsworth's Christmas Birthday
It is Christmas Eve, 1799, and Dorothy Wordsworth is awake in the dead of night. She stands outside in the winter cold, waiting patiently. When the new day breaks it will bring family and friends to Dorothy's door. For tomorrow is a double joy: tomorrow is her Christmas Birthday. Gorgeously illustrated by Tom Duxbury, this festive poem evokes the snowy Lake District as Dorothy celebrates her birthday with her brother William Wordsworth and fellow poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge.

Carol Ann Duffy - Selected Poems

Carol Ann Duffy - The Bees
Carol Ann's new collection - her first since _Rapture_ - and since she was made Poet Laureate. 'Carol Ann Duffy is the most humane and accessible poet of our time' - _Guardian_ 'Part of Duffy's talent besides her ear for ordinary eloquence, her gorgeous, powerful, throwaway lines, her subtlety is her ventriloquism... From verbal nuances to mind-expanding imaginative leaps, her words seem freshly plucked from the minds of non-poets that is, she makes it look easy' - _Observer_ 'Nobody is ever going to need to be told how to enjoy a Carol Ann Duffy poem' - _Evening Standard_ 'Carol Ann Duffy is a poet who covers the stormy waterfront of desire, devotion and despair... As always, she manages the rare feat of building on traditions, forebears, allusions while stirring and shaking the emotions with muscular, unpretentious force' - _Independent_ 'You can't classify Carol Ann as a love poet or a comic poet or a political poet because she is all these things and so much more' - _Sunday Times_
Carol Ann Duffy - Feminine Gospels
