A Morden Tower Reading - Vernon Scannell & Alexis Lykiard

Morden Tower Publications 1976  ISBN 0 905760 00 X

 “Alexis Lykiard, unknown to me apart from the odd piece seen in Samphire, is interesting enough for me to want to search out more of his work. The Attractions, which appeared in the Arts Council Anthology New Poetry 2 is probably the strongest poem and is about guns, essentially the feel of guns…

        What I like most about these poems is that there is life going on down amongst the words…
        A very good ‘buy’ indeed, for both are important poets.”
