Critic reviews

"A genuine and original poet." ( The Times)
"[Duffy] could well become the representative poet of the present day." ( Sunday Times)
"Not only a fresh voice but a dexterity with language, that glorious juggling which poets sometimes achieve with a sense of surprise even to themselves." ( Independent)

Laureate, deservedly

Carol Ann Duffy has an unique voice. Listening to her reading her poems while walking my terrier, I had a vision of a world transformed by her wise distillations of moments of experience. She is a genius.
