The winner of theTS Eliot Prize 2007 is Sean O’Brien, with The Drowned Book. O’Brien is the first person to win both the Forward Prize for Best Collection and the TS Eliot Prize in the same year. Not a bad double!
So well done to him. As far as I am concerned, the result could have been a lot worse. I don't think The Drowned Book was the best collection of the year but it had good moments, some of them very good.
