In the past month, I have read countless poems written by Carol Ann Duffy. Carol Ann Duffy’s poems are always full of emotions, ranging from pure mischief and evil to cozy and heartwarming. From reading Carol Ann Duffy’s works, I have learned to appreciate poems, as they are almost like a puzzle. As we analyze each poem, we discover the figurative meaning behind it, and when we piece the meanings together, we discover a new hidden story. Carol Ann Duffy also frequently uses colloquial diction, which I enjoy reading, as it gives the overall poem a flow. It also allows me as a reader to better understand and connect with the emotions expressed throughout the poem. All in all, the experience of learning Carol Ann Duffy was quite enjoyable as just through one poet, I was able to have a completely new concept and understanding in the text type, poem.
