Carol Ann Duffy is the most widely acclaimed poet in Britain today. In this book, Duffy draws on women's experience - both personal and historical - in poems which celebrate, elegize and eroticize the female condition. With themes of beauty, identity and the body, the book tells tall stories as though they were the gospel truth, and presents new myths as strange and powerful as the old. Feminine Gospels is a brilliant and original successor to Duffy's previous best-selling collections, Mean Time and The World's Wife, and shows her once again on bravura form.
