"A passionate and beautiful new book-length love affair in verse ... Ruthless, sensuous, tender ..." -- Ruth Padel, Independent The effortless virtuosity, drama and humanity of Carol Ann Duffy's verse have made her our 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 treatments of the subject is Duffy's refusal to simplify the contradictions of love, and read its transformations - infatuation, longing, passion, commitment, rancour, separation and grief - as either redemptive or destructive. "Rapture is brilliant, beautiful, and heart-aching" - Jeanette Winterson, The Times.
