The World's Wife

by Carol Ann Duffy
£9.99   paperback  Pan Macmillan (Picador) (2017)

The World This unique collection of poems from the Poet Laureate, filled with her characteristic wit, is a feminist classic and a modern take on age-old mythology.
 
Who? Him. The Husband. Hero. Hunk. The Boy Next Door. The Paramour. The Je t'adore.
 
Behind every famous man is a great woman - and from the quick-tongued Mrs Darwin to the lascivious Frau Freud, from the adoring Queen Kong to the long-suffering wife of the Devil himself, each one steps from her counterpart's shadow to tell her side of the story in this irresistible collection.
 
Original, subversive, full of imagination and quicksilver wit, The World's Wife is Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy at her beguiling best.
