DetailsOne of the freshest and bravest talents to emerge in British poetry - any poetry - for years. Carol Ann Duffy presents a reading from her new book The Bees, her first full collection since becoming Poet Laureate in 2009. In poems which explore place and custom, Duffy explores love, politics and comedy with a deftness of language uniquely her own. Carol Ann Duffy has won the Whitbread, Forward and TS Eliot Prizes for her work. She is accompanied by musician John Sampson at this exclusive event.
