The World's Wife

The World's Wife

The Worlds Wife
The Worlds Wife is the name of a collection of
poems written by Carol Ann Duffy, originally
published in 1999.
The poems are all narrations provided by female
characters, and provide a female perspective on
many stories (both real and fictional) from
throughout history.
The characters in these poems vary greatly. In
some cases, such as Mrs Midas and Mrs Aesop,
they are the wives / partners of well known
male characters, and their narratives provide a
female perspective on the actions of their
husbands. Other poems reimagine male
characters as female, such as The Kray Sisters.
Others, such as Havisham, simply provide
insight into an existing female character.
The poems typically provide female perspectives on a world typically dominated
by male opinions and perspectives.
