Whether writing of longing or adultery, seduction or simple homely acts of love, Carol Ann Duffy brings to her readers the truth of each experience. Her poetry speaks of tangled, heated passion; of erotic love; fierce and hungry love; unrequited love; and of the end of love. It recognizes too the way that love can make the everyday sacred. As with all her writing, these poems are alive to the sounds of modern life, but also attuned to and rich with the traditions of love poetry. Love Poems contains some of Carol Ann Duffy's most popular poems. Always imaginative, heartfelt and direct, Duffy finds words for our experiences in love and out of love, and displays all the eloquence and skill that have made her one of the foremost poets of her time.
