LOVE POEMS by CAROL ANN DUFFY.
BACK COVER BLURB: Whether writing of longing or seduction, of passion, adultery, or simple, everyday acts of love, Carol Ann Duffy perfectly captures the truth of each experience. Love Poems contains some of her most popular poems and, always imaginative, heartfelt and direct, displays all the eloquence and skill that have made her one of the foremost poets of her time.

MY THOUGHTS: OK, so its true to say that I prefer my poetry read to me rather than by me (no big secret to regular readers of Pen and Paper I know) and of all the poetry out there love poems are probably way up there as my least favourite. And then there's the fact that I don't generally rate Poet Laureate, Carol Ann Duffy's poetry BUT, taken as a whole, I actually found myself quite enjoying this collection - some poems more than others of course.
A collection from works already published. I'm guessing romance poetry afficionados and perhaps fans of the author may well already have copies of the various poems even if they aren't all in one volume like this. However for those wishing a nice selection of varied love poems you could do worse than this selection of 34 poems.
