What's it about?

Carol Ann Duffy was appointed Poet Laureate in 2009 and her witty, incisive and moving poems are hugely popular. Author of eight critically acclaimed collections she has also written plays and three books for children. Dubbed as the ‘Poet of post-post-war England: Thatcher’s England’ she has gone to become the poet of the new millennium.

Dedicated to the craft and tradition of poetry; her witty, incisive thoughtful poems address topics such as war, aids, ecology, the rapture of love and the plight of the bees. She has written three books for children and is also a dramatist.

She is accompanied by her long-term collaborator: musician, actor and composer John Sampson, who uses the crumhorn, gemshorn, shalmie pipe, posthorn, recorder, cornettino and Chinese halusis to underline and complement her poems.
