Tutor nominated for poetry prize

first_imgAn Oxford tutor was nominated this week for the T. S. Eliot Prize, the most coveted British award for poetry.Bernard O’Donoghue, a tutor of English at Wadham, was nominated for ‘Farmers Cross’, a collection of poems dealing with the themes of exile, loss and mythology in modern-day Britain.The T. S. Eliot Prize has been awarded annually since 1993 by the UK Poetry Book Society to “the best collection of new verse in English first published in the UK or the Republic of Ireland”.Vice President of the Oxford University Poetry Society Toby Lloyd, when asked about the poet’s nomination, highlighted the importance of the award, as well as the importance of O’Donoghue to Oxford’s poetry scene:“In terms of how he’s viewed in the poetic community, he’s a pretty big deal. Outside of Geoffrey Hill I’d say he’s certainly the most prominent poet currently affiliated with Oxford”, he said. “He’s been nominated twice now for the T. S. Eliot prize, which is sort of like the Booker Prize for poetry”.O’Donoghue, a former undergraduate at Lincoln College, emigrated from Ireland to England at the age of 16. His career in poetry began in 1987 with the publication of his first collection, ‘Poaching Rights’. The nomination for the T. S. Eliot prize is the latest accolade in a distinguished career, which has already seen O’Donoghue win the Whitbread (now Costa) Book Award, for ‘Gunpowder’, in 1995.last_img read more

VesselsValue: Tankers Offer the Most Promising Investment

first_imgPredicting the recovery in asset prices involves many factors, and the current strength of spot market returns, or term hire rates are only a part of the story, VesselsValue said.“Value investors still have plenty of opportunities to acquire prime aged assets at a significant discount to their expected future market value.”According to VesselsValue, tankers offer the most promising investment overall, as most large crude tankers still have significant upside remaining based on an analysis of expected market trends over the next several years. However, opportunities abound in other vessel classes as well.Ton mile demand for the Handysize bulkers remains on a gradual upwards slope. Additionally, the removal of a significant number of older ships has preserved the value of prime age and fuel-efficient vessels in the Panamax container segment.The LR1 Tankers segment has seen a tough market environment over the past several years due to the large growth in vessel supply, while Aframaxes have suffered from changes in trade patterns, but remain the workhorses of the crude tanker fleet, and the average age of the fleet on the water remains high.“Vessel specific forecasts give a much better view of the expected asset value performance, but the trend in five year old asset values is a good starting point when looking for discounted vessels,” VesselsValue concluded.last_img read more
