This study aims to analyze the personas of The World's Wife women. Carol Ann Duffy uses the Monologues to express the voice of the women who were kept silenced in history and myths, and each persona of this poem collection expresses her suffering and desires in a different manner which can be seen as unorthodox through the lens of the social norms. This study focuses on the individual personas as characters and their psychological disturbance. All of the personas face a troubling environment, which she has to face in a certain manner and behavior. Through this study, we can specifically locate the psychological disturbance of Mrs. Beast, Mrs. Lazarus, Mrs. Midas, Mrs. Quasimodo, and Queen Herod.
