This book made front page headlines, following Channel Four's film of the poem.

"A torrent of four-letter filth."
Daily Mail

"This work of singular nastiness."
Mary Whitehouse

This second edition includes press articles, photographs, letters, a defence by film director Richard Eyre, and Channel Four's phone call log.

Tony Harrison's Penguin Selected Poems (1987) was followed by two new collections: The Gaze of the Gorgon (1992) from Bloodaxe and his latest Penguin edition, Laureateís Block (2000). His other more recent books have included film and playscripts from Faber.
