The World’s Wife
by Carol Ann Duffy
‘The nation’s favourite living poet’ – Jeanette Winterson
‘A joyous exuberant book of poems about women usually excluded from myth and history’ – The Guardian
Behind every famous man is a great woman – and from the quick-tongued Mrs Darwin to the lascivious Frau Freud, from the adoring Queen Kong to the long-suffering wife of the Devil himself, each one steps from her counterpart’s shadow to tell her side of the story in this irresistible collection.
Original, subversive, full of imagination and quicksilver wit, The World’s Wife is Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy at her beguiling best.
