    Carol Ann Duffy is probably one of the world s most highly regarded modern poets And she s been recognized for that too, she s the British Poet Laureate Her later collection The World s Wife is often regarded as a modern masterpiece This earlier collection, Standing Female Nude is not quite so highly regarded There are signs here of the greatness she would grow into and some of these poems really are excellent , but in general it isn t of the same calibre as Duffy s mature work.One poem that I had encountered briefly in another collection when I was in school, and found very curious, is I read it so many times when I was sat in the classroom and supposed to be doing something else I couldn t make heads or tails of it for the longest time Eventually I read some critici...

    Duffy has definitely come far since this collection Standing Female Nude is my lesst favourite collection of hers, although it was still higly enjoyable and definitely contained some amazing poems.

    I think what s wonderful about this as a collection is the pace and the contrast in each poem, it never gets dull I really love the order of the poems it can go from witty to bitter and sarcastic to shocking and heartbreaking all within a few pages.The poem that has struck me the most is certainly Lizzie, Six It s near the beginning and yet haunted me to the end and even now It reminded me so much of Lolita the abuser twisting the words of the child It s set out to be reminiscent of a children s story similar to guess how much I love you and other young children s stories suggesting not just that it is a child in the poem but a young child, making it all the haunting I enjoyed the whole collection, it made me laugh, it made me smile, it made me an...

    I had my introduction to Carol Ann Duffy this past February in Scotland when I read Love Poems which my friend Laala had a copy of Unfortunately, she s not nearly as popular in Canada so the only book of hers I was able to track down was her first poetry collection Standing Female Nude While first collections are often interesting in order to see how a poet has developed, they don t always the same power of a later work one strong exception I can think of right away is Satan Says by Sharon Olds, but as a rule this what I have found That said, Standing Female Nude is not a bad collection, although it does have some flaws.Some poems in Standing Female Nude such as Comprehensive and Jealous as Hell are very abrupt and disconnected she definitely hasn t quite perfected the sharp language that marks her writing in later collections Alphabet for Auden even rhymes, and although it is possible to use rhyming a sophisticated way like Plath this is not the case There were also a few poems I just didn t understand, like Dreaming of Somewhere Else and.However there are beautiful poems Saying Something could easily fit into Love Poems Sweetheart, I say Pedestrian daylight terms scratch darker surfaces Your absence leaves me with the ghost of love half warm coffee cups or sheets, the gentlest kiss I also loved Till Our Face The planets abandon us , Letters from Dea...

    A reprint of what is stated to be Poet Laureate Duffy s first collection but both Wiki and Fantastic Fiction have it otherwise The slim volume contains 49 poems A few are only 7 or 8 lines long, most are of longer length, some are sonnets and employ that most pass of poetic devices, rhyme Much of Duffy s verse here tells stories Several deal with unsympathetic husbands.This is a strong assortment of poems with the most memorable including Lizzie, Six which seems to be about child abuse, while Ash Wednesday, 1984 employs rhyme to emphatic effect in imploring parents not to subject their children to religion, Jealous as Hell uses unusual stripped down syntax and grammar to help make its point, Terza Rima SW19 varies from classic terza rima rhyming but does so to good effect, Where We Came In is a modern take on La Ronde with divorcees meeting up complete with new spouses, Free Will dwe...
