Although her sexism towards men annoys me at times i enjoyed many of the poems Carol Ann Duffy has put together in this book! I LOVED "Mrs Darwin"- very funny and witty!

She isn't just critical of men, she also belittles women. take 'Mrs Faust' for instance, Duffy doesn't at any point make Mrs faust out to be all sweet and innocent, her path is just as crude as Faust's. They both seek power, they are both selfish, but they do it in different ways. Before you make such a statement, you should analyze the poems, and look at what Duffy is really saying, or you could even look at her interview with Barry wood in 2005.
