Carol Ann Duffy’s Havisham” is a poem about a woman who was jilted on her wedding day and never recovered from the experience. The poem is narrated by the woman, who is now an old woman living in a decrepit house. She remembers the day of her wedding, when she was young and beautiful, and her fiancé left her at the altar. She remembers the pain and humiliation she felt, and how she has never been able to forget or forgive him. The poem is a portrait of a woman who has been ruined by love, and who can never move on from the past.”
