T. S. Eliot Prize 2013 winner

WINNER OF THE T S ELIOT PRIZE 2013

SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2013 FORWARD PRIZE

 

In Parallax Sinead Morrissey documents what is caught, and what is lost, when houses and cityscapes, servants and saboteurs (?the different people who lived in sepia’) are arrested in time by photography (or poetry), subjected to the authority of a particular perspective. Assured and disquieting, Morrissey’s poems explore the paradoxes in what is seen, read and misread in the surfaces of the presented world.

In a year of brilliantly themed collections, the judges were unanimous in choosing Sinead Morrissey’s Parallax as the winner. Politically, historically and personally ambitious, expressed in beautifully turned language, her book is as many-angled and any-angled as its title suggests.

The outstanding poet of her generation.
