This chapter presents the author's reflections about Liverpool poetry. He describes his collection of poetry books which remind him of the 1960s and early 1970s in Liverpool. He recalls how McGough, Henri and Patten dominated the early years of the Liverpool scene and created the atmosphere in which poetry performances could flourish. He discusses poetry evenings in Liverpool, and cites Mike Hart as his favourite performer on the poetry circuit. He also has fond memories of guest poets coming to Liverpool, including Adrian Mitchell, Christopher Logue and Pete Brown.
