"Blue Coffee has explosive energy, well-directed rage, undimmed idealism, a tremendous sense of how poetry can speak directly, and an innocence which is believable because it is wise."
Andrew Motion, T.S. Eliot Prize

Adrian Mitchell (1932-2008) was a prolific poet, playwright and childrenís writer. His poetryís simplicity, clarity, passion and humour show his allegiance to a vital, popular tradition embracing William Blake as well as the Border Ballads and the blues. His most nakedly political poems ñ about nuclear war, Vietnam, prisons and racism ñ became part of the folklore of the Left, sung and recited at demonstrations and mass rallies.
