Writing Liverpool

Liverpool University Press

This chapter presents an interview with poet Roger McGough, who was born in Litherland in 1937. McGough published his first volume of poetry, Summer with Monika, in 1967 and two collections with Adrian Henri and Brian Patten, The Liverpool Scene and The Mersey Sound. He continues to write poems for adults and children, while also developing a successful career in TV and radio. The interview covers topics such as what being a writer who comes from Liverpool means to him; how he feels about being thought of as a Liverpool poet; and whether he thinks poets occupy a special place.
