About Book

'The Forward Prizes have turned a spotlight on contemporary poetry which is both searching and glamorous'
Carol Ann Duffy

100 Prized Poems brings together the best of the poems published over a quarter century in twenty-five editions of the Forward books of poetry, a series highlighting the works commended annually for the prestigious Forward Prizes.

The roll-call of poets included is a Who’s Who of poetry excellence and includes both familiar names – Simon Armitage, Jackie Kay, Derek Walcott - and fresh voices – Kate Tempest, Kei Miller and Emily Berry.

This anthology of anthologies is a great way of encountering the richness that new poetry has to offer.
