A BookViral Review Of Rapture By Carol Ann Duffy

Acclaim:‘ Carol Ann Duffy is the most humane and accessible poet of our time, and Rapture is essential reading for the broken-hearted of all ages’ – Rose Tremain

The BookViral Review:

When a poet has the longevity that Carol Ann Duffy has you might wonder when the well of inspiration will finally run dry. But if her poetry book release Rapture proves just one thing it’s that her creative spring is positively overflowing.

Unashamedly daring when compared to her earlier works age has not withered a keen intellect and the ability to write incredibly powerful poems. Some simply tripping of the tongue with lyrical merriment whilst others reach us on an altogether more primal level. This is the brilliance of Duffy and why she remains one of the most recognizable names in British poetry. In simple terms, she connects with her readers on a level that they can wholly identify with and remind us that Poetry is both timely and relevant. Allowing us to explore expression and emotions at points in our lives that are often overwhelming and confusing. This is certainly true of love and in Rapture Duffy has given us an intimate look at love with a beginning middle and end.

From stanzas to tone it is by any measure a classic and not only recommended without reservation but is given our very rare single star which is only awarded to Books of Extraordinary Distinction

Evermore by Pixie Woodstock

I see this man, this man is gazing.    Lean and tall, his eyes appraising. Suddenly my cheeks are blazing.             And my heart begins to soar.

Now his eyes, his eyes are looking.        At my legs in silken stocking.                As his hands remove my frocking.        And we sink onto the floor.

Now his hands, his hands are moving. Flimsy lingerie removing.                  Breathless panting sighs are proving. That my body craves for more.

Now, his words, his words come sweetly. Silken tongue seducing neatly. Whispered promise followed meekly. Wondrously rich rapport.
