Poetic People (6): Laureate and Professor
The Times Higher (9-15 April 2009) comments on the 'race' for the Oxford post of Professor of Poetry. Ruth Padel and Derek Walcott are both in with a fine chance. Nominations close on 29 April and the election will take place on 16 May 2009. I have read works by both poets and have heard them both speak at the Guardian Hay Festival.
