Poetry Book Society Pamphlet Choice
"Remarkable." - Poetry Wales
In 2011, Poetry Wales magazine awarded the Poetry Wales Purple Moose Poetry Prize for the third time. The judges, Zoe Skoulding and John Barnie, made their selection of the best short collection of poems, submitted anonymously, with the winner receiving £250 and publication of their world by Seren, Wales' leading literary publisher.
The 2011 winning collection is 'little armoured' by Rebecca Perry.
"little armoured is a brilliant book, which emits light and heat like the electric heater one of its poems describes as
a humming like a bee in the corner
of the room, its orangeness
brighter than your eyes expect.
Its miniatures and transforming images sometimes recall Elizabeth Bishop, its tonally various sequences Paul Muldoon, but this is a young poet who already discovered her own voice in these exact and tender, smart and moving poems." John McAuliffe
