The Globe and Mail called the Griffin Poetry Prize “a rich tribute” to the form and “an annual report on the state of the poetry nation.” This year’s edition, featuring some of the finest work from the collections of extraordinary poets worldwide, reads like a who’s who of contemporary poetry. Selections were chosen by noted poets Michael Redhill, Saskia Hamilton, and Dennis O’Driscoll, and the result is a rich mosaic of a form that remains, in its relatively compact shape but often complex language, one of literature's most enduring gifts.
