Carol Ann Duffy’s prize-winning poetry collection takes the reader on a love journey through the seasons. Whilst Spring brings a new and all encompassing love, Winter heralds a broken heart.
Time hates love, wants love poor,
but love spins gold, gold, gold from straw.
I adore Carol Ann Duffy and all of her poetry and Rapture was another winner for me. It’s intensely personal, passionate, and beautifully written. I loved the changing seasons throughout the collection and the strong nature motif that features in almost every poem. It’s classic love poetry with a delicious Duffy twist.
