Carol Ann Duffy, CBE

POET LAUREATE

Carol Ann Duffy was appointed Poet Laureate in 2009 and is the first woman to assume the role. Duffy always loved reading, and from an early age decided that she wanted to be a writer. At the age of eleven she began crafting her own poetry. Duffy used to take her four brothers’ library cards so that she might borrow more library books. Thanks to the accessibility of her language and the content of her work, Duffy’s poetry has been a popular choice in schools and is studied on many GCSE and A Level syllabi. Her words address a variety of social issues including violence and oppression.
