Full description for Feminine Gospels
In Feminine Gospels, Carol Ann Duffy draws on the historical, the archetypal, the biblical and the fantastical to create various visions -- and revisions -- of female identity. Simultaneously stripping women bare and revealing them in all their guises and disguises, these poems tell tall stories as though they were true confessions, and spin modern myths from real women seen in every aspect -- as bodies and corpses, writers and workers, shoppers and slimmers, fairytale royals or girls-next-door. 'Part of Duffy's talent -- besides her ear for ordinary eloquence, her gorgeous, powerful, throwaway lines, her subtlety -- is her ventriloquism ...From verbal nuances to mind-expanding imaginative leaps, her words seem freshly plucked from the minds of non-poets -- that is, she makes it look easy' Charlotte Mendelson, Observer 'Nobody is ever going to need to be told how to enjoy a Carol Ann Duffy poem ...She is an inspired reinterpreter of myth and a fertile creator of fables of her own' Evening Standard 'Carol Ann Duffy is arguably the nation's favourite living poet' Jeanette Winterson
