Carol Ann Duffy has asked some of the brightest lights in the poetry world to choose a poem that is meaningful -- or has meant something -- to them, and write a reponse to it. With up-and-coming poets alongside more established names, and original poems alongside the new works they've inspired, Answering Back promises to be a truly unique anthology; from old favourites to modern classics, it will be a collection everyone can respond to.
Praise for Carol Ann Duffy's most recent collection, Rapture:
'I read it on the tube and missed my station. I read it in bed and couldn't sleep. I read it at my desk and started to cry. Affairs are notoriously disruptive; reading about an affair is not supposed to have the same effect. But it does in the case of Rapture' Guardian
