Adrian Henri

Selected and Unpublished

edited by Catherine Marcangeli

Liverpool University Press

Poet, painter of international repute, librettist, playwright, rock-and-roll provocateur, Adrian Henri was at the centre of Liverpool's cultural awakening in the 1960s. Friend and confidante of Ginsberg and the Beats, Henri put on the first 'happening' in the UK and his work formed one third of the The Mersey Sound - the best-selling poetry anthology of all time. This new volume presents a selection of the poet's most famous work, as well as the unpublished collection he was working on at the time of his death. A selection of Henri's paintings and reminiscences by critically acclaimed writers and long-time friends of Henri, such as Carol Ann Duffy and Roger McGough, round out this essential volume.
