John Kinsella Withdraws from the TS Eliot Prize

Based on the anti-capitalist sentiment, Australian poet John Kinsella expresses his disappointment at the prestigious TS Eliot prize being sponsored by an investment company, Aurum Funds by withdrawing from the prize. Kinsella is now the second one to withdraw from this prize.

Although the anti-capitalist sentiment is rising and understandable in the West, there needs to be a weighed, triangulated outlook at both the prize as well as the funding. What are your views? Post your comments below (scroll down a little).
