STRICTLY PRIVATE: Anthology of Poetry by Roger McGough (hier online bestellen)
An anthlogy of poetry from an unusual mix of both lesser-known and famous modern poets, that cover a wide
range of topics and ideas.
This anthology is particularly effective as each poem, though different, appear to be linked in the most
unexpected ways to the next. I found myself reading the whole anthology through in one go from cover to cover,
and have returned to it regularly since.
About the author:
Roger McGough OBE is one of the UK's most popular living poets. He has been enormously important in making
poetry accessible and relevant to both child and adult audiences, often using everyday experiences such as
bus rides and playground banter as the source of his work.
Roger first rose to prominence in the 1960's as a member of the pop group The Scaffold, who had two number
one hits, Thank U Very Much and Lily In The Pink. Roger McGough began his poetry career with fellow Liverpool
poets Adrian Henri & Brian Patten in the late 60's, who were all included in the best selling, highly
accessible, modern poetry collection The Mersey Sound.
Roger broadcasts regularly and is the presenter of the BBC Radio 4's Poetry Please and also performs his
poetry to audiences all over the British Isles. He received the Cholmondeley Award for poetry in 1998 and
his OBE for services to Poetry in 1997, In 2001 he was honoured with the freedom of the city of Liverpool.
