Press 53 Poetry Series Editor Tom Lombardo will lead a presentation and discussion on Scottish poet and playwright Carol Ann Duffy, who became Poet Laureate of the United Kingdom in May 2009. Duffy is the first woman, first openly gay, and first Scot to hold the position that began with John Dryden in 1631. Tom will lead a discussion on Duffy’s poems about, and in the voices of, women. Her use of irony, ambiguity, tension make her poems energetic and fun to read and talk about. The discussion will focus particularly on poems from two of her collections: The World’s Wife (New York: Faber and Faber, 1999) and The Bees (New York: Faber and Faber, 2009).
