Set up by T.S. Eliot over 40 years ago, today the Poetry Books Society
selects just a handful of poets to shortlist for the T.S. Eliot Prize. This award, often regarded as the ‘most prized award in poetry’ in the world, celebrates the best in modern poetry.
Congratulations to the 2014 winner, David Harsent, and the nine shortlisted poets. Harsent has been nominated for the TS Eliot prize on five occasions, this being his first win.
To commemorate this year’s shortlisted poets, we’ve reimagined their book covers if they were to appear as a single series.
