In 1967 Penguin Books published the work of Brian Patten, along with co-poets Roger McGough and Adrian Henri, in the collection The Mersey Sound, frequently credited as the single most significant anthology of this century in bringing poetry to new audiences. This is the first full-length critical evaluation of Patten's work - as a poet, as a performer and as a hugely popular children's writer.
