Poetry Saturday: Mrs Darwin by Carol Ann Duffy

Hello everybody and welcome back to another Poetry Saturday!

This week I am reintroducing the wonderful Carol Ann Duffy with another feminist poem. Mrs Darwin is from her collection ‘The Worlds Wife’ and Duffy is basically saying behind every great man, there is an even greater woman.

7th April 1852

Went to the zoo
I said to Him –
Something about that Chimpanzee over there reminds me
of you.
