Abstract  

This article explores Carol Ann Duffy's love poetry, arguing that language, and love itself are presented as a journeying towards the other. Language is expressive of estrangement, but also of a constant reaching out into the phenomenal world. The landscapes and scenes of these poems describe spaces where subject and object, word and thing partake of one another, albeit incompletely. The homesickness which emerges is not sentimental, but an indicator of the located nature of the self.
