Anthony Joseph recently won the T.S. Eliot Prize for poetry collection Sonnets for Albert (Bloomsbury). In celebration, T&T Newsday has published a profile of his work, mentioning his previous collections with Peeoal Tree and the wider impact of Trinbagonian writing in the Anglosphere.

The article begins, "Over the last dozen years a new wave of literary genius has been emanating from the Caribbean. In just the last few years many of the new generation of writers have been winning the top prizes. Anthony Joseph is the second Trinidadian [after Rover Robinson in 2020] to win the most prestigious prize in poetry, the TS Eliot Prize, in just four years. His writer-friend, 2021 Costa book of the year winner Monique Roffey pays homage to a fellow literary trailblazer."
