Following the recent event with Carol Ann Duffy at Swansea University we have signed copies of several of the poet laureate’s newest books ‘Collected Poems’, ‘The King of Christmas’ and ‘The Bees’.
‘Collected Poems’ is Carol Ann Duffy’s first book of collected poems and includes all of the poems from her nine acclaimed volumes of adult poetry – from Standing Female Nude to Ritual Lighting (2014) – as well as her much-loved Christmas poems, which celebrate aspects of Christmas: from the charity of King Wenceslas to the famous truce between the Allies and the Germans in the trenches in 1914. Endlessly varied, wonderfully inventive, and emotionally powerful, the poems in this book showcase Duffy’s full poetic range: there are poems written in celebration and in protest; public poems and deeply personal ones; poems that are funny, sexy, heartbroken, wise. Taken together they affirm her belief that ‘poetry is the music of being human’.
