I am a poet. But any subject is fair game here.
Glad you enjoyed my comments, Rob. I did not actually begin reading either of those because of the prize. I read them because I got them from PBS in the first place. Since so many of the TSE books were PBS choices or recs, I have them on my recently acquired shelf and then end up reading them.
Do you have the Alan Gillis collection on the TSE list - Hawks and Doves? I've only read a couple of poems from it, but they were really strong. I'm looking forward to reading more. I've two huge books (about 300 pages each) to review by the end of the first week of January (by John Ashbery and CD Wright - not easy reading), so I've no time to read anything else at the moment.I hope Edwin Morgan wins the TS Eliot Prize.
I have the Gillis (from PBS) and will take a look at it. Thanks for the tip.
