This chapter presents the reflections of poet and writer Michael Murphy. He recounts his childhood growing up in one of Liverpool's suburbs. He believes that some of his early experiences in relation to growing up in Liverpool have influenced the way he responds to and shapes language. While his writing is rarely driven by anything specifically Liverpudlian, he finds some connections between the idiom of Liverpool and the structures of his work, as reflected in the poem ‘Elsewhere’.
