By Carol Ann Duffy
65 pages, 5 1/4 x 8"
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.
