Summary

A collection of poems by Poet Laureate, Carol Ann Duffy.

Time and its passage are at the heart of this reflective work, which gazes out from the autumn of life. There are moving elegies here for what has departed; whether that be children who have flown the nest, literary luminaries, past loves, lost parents or our own youth.

Duffy turns her eye both inwards, in poems of a deeply personal nature, and also outwards, taking stock of a world in turmoil. A rallying cry builds steadily through the book, culminating in a moving closing ode to the virtue of sincerity.

A fitting close to her time as Poet Laureate, Sincerity is a work of great power from one of our most cherished and humane poets.
