GGs

This is a good link to a listing and bloggish discussion of the shortlisted poets for this year's Governor General's awards for poetry.  I have had my eye on British poets over at The Best American Poetry blog and almost missed this.  Welcome surprises - Circus is nominated, by Michael Harris, and so is the latest Daryl Hine collection.  They are both poets deserving of a wider Canadian readership, so that's great.  This is a notable turn to a more "British" line of formalism and style than past lists.
