T.S. Eliot Prize shortlist unveiled

22nd October 2010

The ten collections on the 2010 T.S. Eliot Prize for Poetry shortlist have been named by the Poetry Book Society.

Seamus Heaney's Human Chain, Seeing Stars by Simon Armitage, Derek Walcott's White Egrets, Phantom Noise by Brian Turner and Fiona Sampson's Rough Music are among the works chosen for the award.

The shortlist is completed by Annie Freud's The Mirabelles, You by John Haynes, Pascale Petit's What the Water Gave Me, The Wrecking Light by Robin Robertson and Sam Willetts' New Light for the Old Dark.

Anne Stevenson, chair of the judging panel, said: 'The judges have found this an exceptional year for poetry, with a record number of entries, and have agreed on a strong shortlist which is unusually eclectic in form and theme.'

The winner of the award will be announced on January 24th 2011 at the Wallace Collection in London. T.S. Eliot's widow, Valerie Eliot, will present the victorious poet with the GBP 15,000 prize.

Last year, Philip Gross won the T.S. Eliot Prize for Poetry with his collection The Water Table.
