While she was Poet Laureate, Carol Ann Duffy gave her readers an illustrated poem every Christmas . . .
She transported them in one year to a seventeenth-century festival on the frozen Thames, in another to the Western Front to witness the famous 1914 truce, then to a winter’s night in the South of France with Pablo Picasso and his small dog. Christmas Poems presents these ten seasonal poems alongside artwork from Rob Ryan, David de las Heras and Lara Hawthorne, among others.
