Seatonian Prize

The Examiners of the Seatonian Prize for the best English poem on a sacred subject give notice that the subject for 2018 is:

‘There burst he forth: ‘All ye, whose hopes rely

On God, with me amidst these deserts mourn;

Repent, repent, and from old errors turn!’

– Who listen’d to his voice, obey’d his cry?

   Only the echoes, which he made relent,

   Rung from their marble caves ‘Repent! Repent!’ ’

from W. H. Drummond, Flowers of Sion: Or, Spiritual Poems IX

The Prize is open for competition among all members of the Senate, and all persons who are possessors of the status of Master of Arts. Further details are available at

The Prize for 2017 was awarded to Professor Randall Johnson of Pembroke College.
