Love poetry – the hardest to write?

Love poetry is hardest to write, says poet laureate

Happy Easter! It’s Spring, so it’s about time the Literary Connections blog put out some new shoots. Thanks to the impressive technical expertise of my son, the blog has been rescued from the clutches of the hackers who attempted to redirect everyone to some boring search site.

I can now revive a comment I began last year but still seems seasonal. Carol Ann Duffy may no longer be ‘new’ as Poet Laureate, but her comments on love poetry being the hardest to write are still worth reading. They might be particularly interesting to anyone following the AQA A Level course on Love Through the Ages.
