Scottish poet Carol Ann Duffy was the first woman to be appointed Poet Laureate of Britain in 2009.  It took a mere 400 years for this to happen.  She is a professor of poetry at Manchester Metropolitan University.

Her poem The Bee Carol is from the first book of poems published after she became poet laureate. A review of this book, The Bees may be found here.
