Singer of Meat and Flowers
This chapter examines on the poetry of Adrian Henri, which is, more than that of Roger McGough or Brian Patten, particularly redolent of Liverpool. Henri's poems are mostly love poems, autobiographical snippets, and collages full of bright and dark sensual detail; others are wry little observations and wordplays, often a bit funny, often poignant. Others, with various intentions, experiment with forms, including a last will and testament, advertisements, short stories and stage directions; and some are flights of fantasy, bringing great buffetings of apocalyptic imagery or setting characters from fiction and myth in the everyday world. The chapter also includes an interview with Henri, which took place at his house in Mount Street, Liverpool, on 12 February 2000.
