Honorary Fellow on Modernist Studies Association shortlist

Wednesday 2 August

Professor Sir Christopher Ricks (Balliol 1953, Honorary Fellow) has been shortlisted for the Modernist Studies Association 2017 Book Prize for fan Edition, Anthology, or Essay Collection for The Poems of T.S. Eliot (ed. with Jim McCue) (Faber & Faber, 2015).

Announcing the shortlist, the MSA describes the book as ‘a landmark in modernist scholarship and poetry editing, a superb critical edition of the poems … This is a nine-year project by the editors, magisterial in its range, depth and scope, and the finesse of the editorial policy and practice is matchless.’ The winner will be announced at the MSA’s 19th annual conference, 10-13 August.
