Carol Ann Duffy
Carol Ann Duffy's seventh collection is a book-length love poem, and a moving act of personal testimony, but what sets these poems apart is Duffy's refusal to simplify the contradictions and transformations of love - infatuation, longing, passion, commitment, rancour, separation and grief.
"Rapture is that rare thing - a poetry book that can (and should) be read from start to finish. At its core is an episodic love story, each "chapter" containing a love poem that can be savoured alone or as part of the whole piece... A vibrant work, Rapture bursts into life as if nothing has been kept back, every last emotion spilt onto the page. As the latest Carol Ann Duffy collection it is magnificent; as an examination of modern love and how it shapes us as human beings, it is unparalleled."
