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 TremainThe effortless virtuosity, directness, drama and humanity of Carol Ann Duffy's verse have made her our most admired and best-loved 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 that Duffy refuses to simplify the contradictions of love, and read its transformations - infatuation, longing, passion, commitment, rancour, separation and grief - as simply redemptive or destructive. Rapture is a map of real love, in all its churning complexity. Yet in showing us that a song can be made of even the most painful episodes in our lives, Duffy has accessed a new level of directness that sacrifices nothing in the way of subtlety of expression. These are poems that will find deep rhymes in the experience of most readers, and nowhere has Duffy more eloquently articulated her belief that poetry should speak for us all.… (mais)

Holy mackerel!
This is an incredible, spectacular, heart-breaking collection. I read it straight through twice, back to back, stopping to repeat lots of the poems multiple times.
It has all of the feelings, I laughed, I wept, I dreamed. I found myself excited to turn the page and see what next gem was there for me overleaf. I haven't been this enthusiastic for a book in ages.

I have always found Carol Ann Duffy's poetry excellent, and this collection is really the pinnacle. Packed full of imagery, emotion, thoughts and feelings.

Read it as soon as you can. Then read it again. ( )

As in modern sculpture, carftmanship is despised, modern sculpture is often nothing more than coarse, un-worked materials on a pile, lacking design, composition, structure, or embellishment, likewise, in modern poetry, anything goes. Thus, aspiring for beauty is obviously 'old hat'.

According to the blurb Rapture "is a map of real love". In Love poems that "real love" consisted mostly in adultery. In Rapture love is quite banal.

The poems have a rythmic quality and song-like repetitiveness. They are pleasant to read, but one assumes there might be 13 to a dozen.

There are probably plenty of people who like this type of down-to-earth poetry, which may explain why Carol Ann Duffy is Poet Laureate. ( )

Aptly titled, sizzling, intimate, teasing, self-mocking, an idyll, and idylic even as cold change clamps down ( )

Now no discourse, except it be of Love;
Now I can break my fast, dine, sup and sleep
Upon the very naked name of Love.
