Anne Hathaway

Anne Hathaway

  

by Carol Ann Duffy

Analysis: Tough-o-Meter

(3) Base Camp

This poem can be a little tricky if you don't know too much about Anne Hathaway or Shakespeare. But hey, we at Shmoop are here to help! Read what we've got to say about the historical context for this poem in our "In a Nutshell" section, and you should be good to go. The poem is a piece of cake once you realize that Duffy's not writing about Anne Hathaway the movie star. (Though we wouldn't mind reading a poem about the movie star, too. Carol Ann, are you listening?)
