The Griffin Poetry Prize thinks big. In fact, it's the largest prize given to first-edition English-language poetry in the world - short-listers get $10,000, winners in two categories $65,000. The international short-listers are David Harsent (Night), Yusuf Komunyakaa (The Chameleon Couch), Sean O'Brien (November) and Tadeusz Rózewicz (Sobbing Superpower, translated by Joanna Trzeciak). Competitors for the Canuck prize are Ken Babstock (Methodist Hatchet), Jan Zwicky (Forge) and GG winner Phil Hall (Killdeer). The award is presented tonight (Thursday, June 7) at a by-invitation-only gala. For more info go to griffinpoetryprize.com.
