Second Poet Pulls Out Of TS Eliot Prize Consideration
"John Kinsella has become the second poet to withdraw from the TS Eliot Prize in protest over its sponsorship by investment firm, Aurum Funds. The Australian, who was shortlisted for his collection Armour, said he was withdrawing on "ethical" grounds. Prize organisers The Poetry Book Society made the deal after losing its public funding earlier this year." BBC 12/07/11
