Forward prizes reveal shortlists of poems from 'the age of migration'


From Kurdish writer Choman Hardi's poetry telling the stories of the survivors of genocide to Trinidadian Vahni Capildeo's examination of the alienation of the expatriate, the shortlist for the Forward prize for best poetry collection marks a "complete resurgence" and a "breaking down of barriers" in poetry, according to the chair of judges for the prestigious award.
