  • So glad Ted Hughes isn't there and it looks like he's being confined to the rubbish bin of history. I think out of the entire list Benjamin Zephaniah is doing more than anybody in this country to get people, especially young people, excited by poetry. Surprised Seamus Heaney was not on the list though.
  • I wonder if it was more to do with the age of the people who voted.
