Eliot by Christopher Ricks and Jim McCue is unprecedented; their work illuminates every one of Eliot’s poems in ways unimaginable until now. This work will remain invaluable to readers and students of poetry for many generations.” News of the Pegasus Award accompanied the announcement that poet Ed Roberson is this year’s recipient of the Foundation’s Ruth Lilly Prize.
