Description

Carol Ann Duffy has invited fifty of her peers to choose and respond to a poem from the past.

With up-and-coming poets alongside more established names, and original poems alongside the new works they have inspired - Paul Muldoon, Vickie Feaver and U.

A. Fanthorpe, for example, engage with classic works by Philip Larkin, Emily Dickinson and Christina Rossetti - the result is a collection of voices that speak to one another across the centuries.

Teasing, subverting, arguing, echoing and - ultimately - illuminating, Answering Back is a vibrant, fascinating and timeless anthology, compiled by one of the nation's favourite poets. `Intriguing . . . Entertaining and stimulating' Good Book Guide `A starry game of call and answer across poetic generations' FT Magazine
