Lorna Goodison continues to stack up the major literary prizes, grabbing yet another prestigious honour this week.  

The Jamaican Poet Laureate is one of eight recepients of the Windham-Campbell Prize.

 

Each writer will each be recognised with a US$165,000 prize to support their writing.

    

Awards will be conferred September 12-14 at an international literary festival at Yale, where the prizes are based.

 

The prize was established in 2013 with a gift from the late Donald Windham in memory of his partner of 40 years, Sandy M. Campbell.

 

The prize is among the richest and most prestigious literary prizes in the world.

 

Lorna Goodison's poetry draws the reader into a panoramic history of a woman's life, bearing witness to female embodiment, the colonial legacy, mortality, and the sacred.

 

Lorna Goodison is one of the Caribbean's foremost writers and the current Poet Laureate of Jamaica.

 

She has received many honours, including the Musgrave Medal (1999) and the Commonwealth Writers' Prize (1987). 

 

She is Professor Emerita at the University of Michigan, where she was the Lemuel A. Johnson Professor of English and African and Afro-American Studies.
