Selected Poems, Carol Ann Duffy

Selected Poems: Carol Ann Duffy - Carol Ann Duffy

I quite liked a number of the poems collected here for their sentiments but in terms of poetic expression, Duffy does not compare well with many modern poets. Much of her work could be re-arranged into prose without the loss of anything - not the sign of a great poet. Disappointing for the current Poet Laureate.
