Patricia McCarthy's First world war poem wins National Poetry Competition 2013

Patricia McCarthy's First world war poem wins National Poetry Competition 2013 | War Poetry | Scoop.it

Patricia McCarthy wins £5,000 prize and comparisons with Wilfred Own and Siegfried Sassoon has won the poetry journal Agenda's editor Patricia McCarthy the National Poetry Competition.

 

McCarthy, who has published several poetry collections of her own, beat 13,040 other entries to win the anonymously-judged prize. Her winning poem, "Clothes that escaped the Great War", tells of the plodding carthorse who would take boys away to war, and then return, later, with just their clothes. "These were the most scary, my mother recalled: clothes / piled high on the wobbly cart, their wearers gone," writes McCarthy.
