The Mersey Sound

Adrian Henri, Et Al

The Mersey Sound was conceived and first published in 1967. An anthology which features the work of Liverpool poets Roger McGough, Brian Patten and Adrian Henri, it went on to sell over half a million copies and to become the bestselling poetry anthology of all time. Irreverent, sardonic, funny and sad, these are the poems that echo the mood of the sixties.
