Welsh poet and T. S. Eliot Prize judge Gillian Clarke writes in the wake of Alice Oswald and John Kinsella's decisions to withdraw from the 2011 T. S. Eliot Prize shortlist. Clarke offers the view that 'prizes are a society's way to thank poets for the words they write' and that prizemoney should be approached with the attitude 'take if from the rich, give it to a poet and reader'.
