The Prize Poem
P.G Wodehouse
The story of The Prize Poem is mainly about the choice of the best poem out of the poems submitted by the members of the Sixth Form of St. Austin’s College. The winner, the writer of the best poem, is given the prize at the annual function. This competition is required by the will left by a certain rich man before his death.
A rich and ill-natured (misanthropic=hater of mankind) man had a scheme to eternalise his memory after his death. Hence, he left a will in which he reserved a portion of his personal income to be spent on an annual prize to be given to the writer of the best poem. The condition was that the poem had to be written only by the members of the Sixth Form of St.Austin’s College. This convention was preserved for a period of twenty seven long years.
