Collected Poems, Paperback / softback Book

Description

Roger McGough is one of Britain's best loved poets and this collection 'charts [his] passage from youthful exuberance to the wry reflection of his later years.

What remains the same throughout the 40 years is the poet's winning wit, accessibility and abiding readability' Independent ----------------------------------'Time has confirmed ... that McGough's talent was much more substantial than many of his long-forgotten detractors suspected.

If he was a pop poet it was not in any ephemeral sense.

A shy extrovert ... he has given voice to poetry and found a voice of his own which is humourful, introspective, irreverent, easy on the ear, conversational.

It is also memorable and enduring and fresh. Age has not withered [his lines] nor diminished their potency.

Of how much modern poetry can you say that?' Sunday Herald
