Time’s Tidings is a rich and varied collection of poems on the theme of time. Edited and introduced by the author of the award-winning Mean Time, it is published from Greenwich, the heart of Britain’s millennium celebrations. Carol Ann Duffy has chosen poems by fifty contemporary poets – 25 men and 25 women, from all parts of the UK and Ireland – representing a cross-section of the liveliest poetry now being written. In addition, each of these poets has chosen another poem from the heritage of poetry in English. Thus the anthology travels through time and place as it reflects the meaning of time in our lives.
