This is Carol Ann Duffy's poem, "Mrs Icarus".
I'm not the first or the last
to stand on a hillock,
watching the man she married
prove to the world
he's a total, utter, absolute, Grade A pillock.
Clearly, Duffy makes reference to Greek mythology and the story of Icarus and Daedalus' wings. However, the speaker in the poem refers to "the man she married" - is the speaker perhaps a friend of Mrs Icarus? Also, the original story states that Icarus is a boy, so it seems counterintuitive for him to have a wife, could "the man" be referring to Daedalus instead? On the other hand the last line seems to describe Icarus' overconfidence in flying too close to the Sun, so the poem appears very ambiguous about who is who. Is there an authoritative interpretation on the identities of the characters in the poem, or has the poet deliberately left it ambiguous?
