wole soyinka leads candidates

On the day that Britons decide on a new parliament and government there is another race on the go in the United Kingdom. This is a more poetic race. Who will reach the University of Oxford to be the next ‘Oxford professor poetry’. For threehundred years there has been a professor of poetry.  

To become a candidate you need to have at leat 50 Oxford graduates behind you. One poet who is in the race is the Nigerian Wole Soyinka. Next month we will know who will be the next professor of poetry in Oxford. 

Poetry polling ... Wole Soyinka.
