Stunningly original, haunting, and memorable, the voices of Mrs. Midas, Queen Kong, Mrs. Lazarus, and Frau Freud, to say nothing of the Devil's Wife herself, startle us with their wit, imagination, and incisiveness in this collection of poems written from the perspectives of the wives, sisters, or girlfriends of famous - and infamous - male personages. The acclaimed poet Carol Ann Duffy is a master at drawing on myth and history and subverting them in a wholly unexpected and surprising way. Verse for a new century, these poems - vivid, outrageous, and funny - have the pull of the past and the crack of the contemporary.
