WINNER OF THE T S ELIOT PRIZE 2013SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2013 FORWARD PRIZE In Parallax Sinéad Morrissey documents what is caught, and what is lost, when houses and cityscapes, servants and saboteurs ( the different people who lived in sepia') are arrested in time by photography (or poetry), subjected to the authority of a particular perspective. Assured and disquieting, Morrissey's poems explore the paradoxes in what is seen, read and misread in the surfaces of the presented world.In a year of brilliantly themed collections, the judges were unanimous in choosing Sinéad Morrissey's Parallax as the winner. Politically, historically and personally ambitious, expressed in beautifully turned language, her book is as many-angled and any-angled as its title suggests.Ian Duhig, Chair of the T S Eliot Prize 2013 JudgesThe outstanding poet of her generation.Stephen Knight, Independent
