9780141189260: The Mersey Sound: Restored 50th Anniversary Edition (Penguin Modern Classics)

'I wanted your soft verges
But you gave me the hard shoulder'

The Mersey Sound brought poetry down from the shelf and on to the street, capturing the mood of the Sixties and speaking to real lives with its irreverent, wry, freewheeling verses of young love, petrol-pump attendants, CND leaflets and bus journey capers. Bringing together the hugely influential work of Adrian Henri, Roger McGough and Brian Patten - the 'Liverpool Poets' - this perennially beloved volume is the bestselling poetry anthology of all time. Now, for its fiftieth anniversary, this edition restores the original text of the book as it first appeared in 1967: energetic, raw and a true record of its era.

About the Author:

Roger McGough is one of the UK's most celebrated and distinctive poets. He is the author of more than fifty books and has written numerous scripts, including the script for the Beatles' film Yellow Submarine. He is an international ambassador for poetry and in 1997 was awarded an OBE.

Adrian Henri, 1932-2000, was an artist, poet, teacher, rock and roll performer, playwright and librettist. He lectured in art at both Manchester and Liverpool Colleges of Art. He was president of the Merseyside Arts Association and Liverpool Academy of the Arts in the 1970s and was an honorary professor of the city's John Moores University. His numerous publications include Wish You Were Here and Not Fade Away.

Brian Patten is one of the most accessible and popular poets working today. His collections include Grinning Jack (Selected Poems), Love Poems, Storm Damage and Armada. In 2002, Brian Patten won The Cholmondeley Award for services to poetry. Together with McGough and Henri, he was honoured with The Freedom of the City of Liverpool.
