On the Beach at Cambridge
Black cloth boards with gilt lettering to spine. SIGNED by the author to title page with the dedication ‘Peace -‘ and a drawing of an elephant. In dust jacket designed by Michael Keates. *** Original collection of poetry by the later ‘shadow poet laureate’ Adrian Mitchell (24 October 1932 – 20 December 2008). Dubbed the British Mayakovsky by Kenneth Tynan, Mitchell sits in a long line of activist poets. He has a real dislike for the academic approach of poetry and has always insisted that his work cannot be used in any school examinations. In a National Poetry Day poll in 2005 his poem “Human Beings” was voted the one most people would like to see launched into space.
