Alison Flood reports on John Kinsella's withdrawal from the 2011 T. S. Eliot Prize following his shortlisting for the award. Kinsella told the Guardian newspaper that 'I regret that I must do this at a particularly difficult time for the Poetry Book Society but the business of Aurum [the prize's sponsor] does not sit with my personal politics and ethics'.
