The State of Poetry by Roger McGough

In May 2005 Penguin will publish 70 unique titles to celebrate the company's 70th birthday. The titles in the Pocket Penguins series are emblematic of the renowned breadth of quality of the Penguin list and will hark back to Penguin founder Allen Lane's vision of 'good books for all'.



Roger McGough made his name in The Mersey Sound: Penguin Modern Poets 10, published in 1967 and a bestseller ever since. Over the years, McGough has continued to delight readers with his short, playful and comic verses, and in The State of Poetry he displays the range and the wit that continues to make him one of the leading lights of British poetry.

About Roger McGough


'The patron saint of poetry' (according to Carol Ann Duffy), Roger McGough was born in Liverpool, the son of a docker, and attended Hull University. In the '60s he had a brief flirtation with the pop world as a member of the Scaffold. He has been one of Britain's most popular poets for over 40 years, and has written many books for children and adults. His Selected Poems, entitled Blazing Fruit, is a bestselling poetry title on the Penguin backlist. He lives in Barnes, south-west London, with his wife and two youngest children.
