|The Griffin Poetry Prize Anthology (2007)
A Selection of the Shortlist
The best books of poetry published in English internationally and in Canada are honoured each year with the Griffin Poetry Prize, one of the world’s richest and most prestigious literary awards.
The Griffin Poetry Prize Anthology: A Selection of the 2007 Shortlist includes poems from the exceptional books shortlisted by jurors John Burnside, Charles Simic, and Karen Solie for this year’s two $50,000 awards.
The poems in the 2007 anthology are selected and introduced by Solie, the Canadian member of the jury. Royalties from the sales of the anthologies are donated to UNESCO’s World Poetry Day, created to support linguistic diversity through poetic expression and to offer endangered languages the opportunity to be heard in their communities.
