SINCERITY

CAROL ANN DUFFY    Book Number: 89640    Product format: Hardback

The effortless virtuosity, directness, drama and humanity of the poet Carol Ann Duffy's verse have made her our most admired and best-loved contemporary poet. This is her last collection of poems as Poet Laureate, and the successor to the award-winning The Bees. Time and its passage are at the heart of the collection which gazes out from the autumn of life. Here are moving elegies to the departed, be that children who have flown the nest, a way of life, the poet's own parents or her own youth. She dramatizes scenes from childhood, adolescence and adulthood and finds moments of grace or consolation in memory, love and language amid the complexities of life. Deeply personal in nature, she takes stock of a world in turmoil and in some of her most radical work yet she satirises and unpicks the deception and dishonesty at the heart of our political situation, a rallying cry that builds steadily through the collection up to a powerful closing poem. Beautifully designed and one poem per page, they include Dark School, Elephants, Oval Map Sampler, Blackbird, Charlotte, In the Drowned Bookshop, Burgling, New Year's Eve, Shakespeare in His Garden, The Creation of Adam and Eve, The Garden Before Rain among the 64 poems. Foil dust jacket, pagemarker.
