The Mersey Sound, Paperback
5 out of 5 (1 rating)


'"The Mersey Sound" is an attempt to introduce contemporary poetry to the general reader by publishing representative work by each of three modern poets in a single volume, in each case the selection has been made to illustrate the poet's characteristics in style and form'.

With this modest brief, "The Mersey Sound" was conceived and first published in 1967.

An anthology which features Roger McGough's work, alongside that of Brian Patten and Adrian Henri (The Liverpool Poets), it went on to sell over half a million copies and to become the bestselling poetry anthology of all time.

Republished this year, a replacement for my long lost 1967 edition. These poems are my adolescence. I loved them all.
