2011 T S Eliot Prize for Poetry

The shortlist for this year's prize has been announced with all sorts of extra joiny-on goodness.

There's an affiliated Reading Group scheme with downloadable notes on the poems and poets, and suggested ideas for discussion.

Three poems from each of the shortlisted poetry collections are available to download.

It's well worth checking out the
Poetry Book Society’s website as there are all manner of extras up for grabs.

Here's the list of titles - you can click on them individually to check on availibilty, or you can click here to bring up the whole list.

John Burnside Black Cat Bone

Just heard they've announced the 2011 Costa Poetry Award - there's a fair bit of cross-over, so we won't be doing a separate blog (don't want you getting poetry fatigue do we), but you can check out what we have here.
