Adrian Henri Selected and Unpublished Poems, 1965-2000

Author(s): Catherine Marcangeli (Editor); Carol Ann Duffy (Foreword by)


Poet, painter, librettist, playwright, rock-and-roll provocateur—Adrian Henri was at the center of Liverpool’s cultural awakening in the 1960s. Friend and confident of Ginsberg and the Beats, Henri put on the first “happening” in the United Kingdom, and his work formed one third of The Mersey Sound, Britain’s all time best-selling poetry anthology. An internationally acclaimed artist who mixed with the Beatles and toured with Led Zeppelin, Henri is most renowned for his artful tying of surrealist poetry to popular culture. This volume presents a collection of the poet’s most famous work, as well as the unpublished collection he was working on at the time of his death.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 a series of essays by critically-acclaimed writers and longtime friends of Henri, such as Carol Ann Duffy and Roger McGough, round out this essential volume.
