Happy Birthday, Carol Ann Duffy, born 23 December 1955
- I like to use simple words, but in a complicated way.
- I have piles of poetry books in the bathroom, on the stairs, everywhere. The only way to write poetry is to read it.
- I see the shape of the poem before I start writing, and the writing is just the process of arriving at the shape.
- Poets deal in writing about feelings and trying to find the language and images for intense feelings.
- Poetry and prayer are very similar.
Duffy is a Scottish poet and playwright. She was appointed Britain’s poet laureate in May 2009. She is the first woman, and the first Scot to hold the position.
