Guess the Sex
The eleven short-listed finalist poems of the TLS/Foyles poetry competition 2007 are posted online here. Click on the link at the bottom of the web page and download the poems in an adobe acrobat file which will print on one page of A4 paper. You can vote for a winner yourself before 28 June.
I thought it might be interesting to set a little challenge for readers of Connaissances: guess the sex of the poets on the basis of the poems. Have a read of the poems, each poem has an identifying letter in front of the title, and then record in the comments of this post the letter identifying the poem and whether it is a man or a woman writing.
Add your reasoning as well if you like. If I get enough contributors, I'll publish the statistics.
On 13 July we'll get the results.
