Wide-ranging yet narrow.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Forward Book of Poetry 2011 (Paperback)
As usual the Forward Prizes prove both the quality and breadth (from 'Famous Seamus' to the lesser known names nominated for Best First Collection) of contemporary poetry in the UK.
Note though that this year's anthology is much slimmer than the 2010 edition but retails for the same price. Perhaps it is unfair to review poetry in terms of page count (Amazon suggests they are the same but this would seem to be an error), but perhaps not.
