Ritual Lighting Summary

Ritual Lighting: Laureate Poems by Carol Ann Duffy

Carol Ann Duffy was appointed Poet Laureate of the United Kingdom in May 2009. In the first five years of her laureateship, she has written brilliant, challenging, lyrical and relevant poetry about people, places and significant moments, past and present. From Chaucer to Shakespeare, from Valentine's Day to Christmas Eve, from the industrial cities to the White Cliffs of Dover, this selection of her public poems celebrates our nation and its rituals.

Beautifully illuminated by Stephen Raw - a wonderful textual artist who recreates words, lines and poems in the most elegant and sumptuous form - Ritual Lighting marks the half-way point of Carol Ann Duffy's Laureateship in gorgeous style, and is a stunning gift book from Britain's most popular poet.

She has written for both children and adults, and her poetry has received many awards, including the Signal Prize for Children's Verse, the Whitbread and Forward Prizes, the PEN Pinter Prize, the T. S. Eliot Prize, the Costa Prize for poetry, and the Lannan and E. M. Forster Prize in America. She was appointed Poet Laureate in 2009.

Stephen Raw was born in London in 1952. He studied at Wimbledon and Ravensbourne Colleges of Art and Design, then at Manchester Metropolitan University for an MA.

'Fundamental to all my artwork,' Stephen says, 'is a love of language and how that language is given a visual dimension through those arbitrary signs we call letters - images in themselves.'
