Named after poet TS Eliot, the TS Eliot prize is an annual award given “for the best new poetry collection published in the UK or Ireland”. A shortlist of 10 poetry collections chosen from 177 entries was introduced for TS Eliot Prize 2021 not too long ago. “We are delighted with our shortlist, while lamenting all the fine work we had to set aside. Poetry styles are as disparate as we’ve ever known them, and the wider world as threatened and bewildered as any of us can remember. Out of this we have chosen ten books that sound clear and compelling voices of the moment. Older and younger, wiser and wilder, well-known and lesser-known, these are the ten voices we think should enter the stage and be heard in the spotlight, changing the story,” Glyn Maxwell, poet and Chair of Judges- TS Eliot prize, mentioned in an announcement on their official web site.
