Mysterious yet accessible; both truthful and beautiful; this selection is a paean to the power of love and of language's ability to capture it. * Sunday Telegraph * Carol Ann Duffy is a poet who covers the stormy waterfront of desire, devotion and despair . . . from distant yearning to wild new passion through absence, boredom and infidelity, to break-ups, grief and solitude . . . As always, she manages the rare feat of building on traditions, forebears, allusions while stirring and shaking the emotions with muscular, unpretentious force. * Independent *
