The World's Wife

Nominiert: T. S. Eliot Prize 2000, Nominiert: Forward Prize for Poetry Best Collection 1999

That saying? Behind every famous man . . . ? From Mrs Midas to Queen Kong, from Elvis's twin sister to Pygmalion's bride, they're all here, in Carol Ann Duffy's inspired and inspirational collection, The World's Wife . Witty and thought-provoking, this is a tongue-in-cheek, no-holds-barred look at the real movers and shakers across history, myth and legend. If you have ever wondered, for example, how exactly Darwin came up with his theory of evolution, or what, precisely, Frau Freud thought about her husband - then this is the book for you, as the wives of the great, the good, the not so good, and the legendary are given a voice in Carol Ann Duffy's sparkling and inventive collection.

'Carol Ann Duffy is a poet of skill, talent and great heart' Erica Wagner

'Duffy takes a cheeky, subversive, no-nonsense swipe with a dish clout at the famous men of history and myth. They don't have a chance in hell of dodging her quick-witted wallop as she relays their stories from their spouse's points of view' The Times

'Poignant, thoughtful, funny, rich and accessible' Ruth Padel, Guardian , Books of the Year
