TS Eliot Turns Blue

Isn’t this the second woman to win the TS Eliot Poetry Prize? Good lord, what’s happening to us. While I can’t claim to be a fan of Carol Anne Duffy, I can content myself with gender winning out. Though what I’d like to see is some more innovative work appearing on the mainstream shelves of the world. What gives? I just don’t get it…can’t people read outside of their own perspective? Where’s the curiousity about what’s happening on the other side of the fence? When did poetry get so narrow minded?
