The effortless virtuosity, drama and humanity of Carol Ann Duffys verse have made her a most admired contemporary poet. Rapture, her seventh collection, is a book-length love poem, and a moving act of personal testimony. But what sets these poems apart from other love poems is Duffys refusal to simplify the contradictions of love, and read its transformationsinfatuation, longing, passion, commitment, rancour, separation and griefas either redemptive or destructive. Rapture is a map of real love, in all its churning complexity; simultaneously direct and subtle, with poems that will find deep resonance in the experience of most readers, it is a collection that speaks for us all.
