Rooting in the Banana Box

Today's unearthed bargain:
In exchange my newly minted 1€uro coin a battered Penguin - Children of Albion, Poetry of the 'Underground' in Britain. This 382-page 1969 collection from the New Movement or so-called Underground poets contains such good stuff as Adrian Mitchell's 'Veteran With A Head Wound' and 'Nostalgia - Now Threepence Off'.
Editor Michael Horowitz thanks Allen Ginsberg for visiting Liverpool and serving British poetry with a timely kick in the rectum. Also in the Penguin are Lee Harwood, Spike Hawkins, Tom Pickard and co. all the alphabetical way to Michael X.
