Gladsongs and Gatherings

Stephen Wade

Liverpool University Press

This chapter presents an interview with poet Brian Patten. It suggests that Liverpool clearly remains a mental, creative landscape for Patten; it is perhaps emblematic of a phase of consciousness, mixing uneasily the schoolboy and the teenager, and various sorts of rebellion. Though Patten was keen to explore his early years, he was reluctant to see anything there that might, in future, identify the city and the period as a British Frisco City Lights/Ginsberg relative.

Keywords:   Liverpool, poets, poetry, rebellion, Brian Patten
