About the publication
In her prize-winning fourth collection, Mean Time, Carol Ann Duffy dramatizes scenes from childhood, adolescence and adulthood, finding moments of grace or consolation in memory, love and language amid the complexities of life. These are powerful poems of loss, betrayal and desire.
Duffy is magnificent, grounded, heartfelt, dedicated to the notion that poetry can give us the music of life itself.Scotsman
