The pb of the best-selling collection from one of Britain's most loved poets Carol Ann Duffy is the most widely-acclaimed poet in Britain today. In FEMININE GOSPELS, Duffy draws on women's experience - both personal and historical - in poems which celebrate, elegise and eroticise 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 successor to Duffy's best-selling collection THE WORLD'S WIFE. The PB is guaranteed to build on the success of the HB.
Carol Ann Duffy has written for both children and adults and her poetry for both has received many awards, including the Signal Prize for Children's Verse and the Whitbread and Forward Prizes. Previous collections include Mean Time and The World's Wife. She currently lives in Manchester.
