The Poetry Book Society is delighted to announce that the winner of the 2013 T S Eliot Prize for Poetry
is Parallax by Sinéad Morrissey, published by Carcanet. This is the fourth time Sinéad has been shortlisted for the T S Eliot Prize, having previously been shortlisted in 2002, 2005 and 2009.
Chair Ian Duhig said:In a year of brilliantly themed collections, the judges were unanimous in choosing Sinéad 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.
