In the media
Carol Ann Duffy is considered a top poet. But she deserves better. She deserves to outsell most of the novelists on your shelf


One of the most important, and rightly loved, poets of our time


It isn’t often that I pick up a book of poems and read it straight through like a novel, but that is exactly what happened with Rapture. Read this book if you are in love, out of love or waiting for it to come along

Daisy Goodwin Mail on Sunday

Carol Ann Duffy is the most humane and accessible poet of our time, and Rapture is essential reading for the broken-hearted of all ages
