Blackbird singing : poems and lyrics, 1965-1999 by Paul McCartney( Book )

20 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 1,419 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To actually read Paul McCartney's poems, whether exuberant love ballads or poignant messages of deepest grief, is to revel in the sheer power of language and to appreciate the electrifying confluence of dream and song. Indeed, his words are as pure and magical as we remember them. Here, in his first collection of poems and lyrics, McCartney emerges with a dreamlike yet thoroughly mature voice that confirms his stature as one of the most original and best-loved poets of our time. Inspired by his late wife, Linda McCartney, Blackbird Singing gives us extraordinary access to the inner life of one of the most influential figures of twentieth-century culture. The poems here demonstrate, against an acknowledgment of the solitariness of existence, an irrepressible belief in the power of words and music "to take a sad song and make it better."--Publisher description

Ever since Out Loud in 1968, Adrian Mitchell has been one of Europe's bestselling poets. His poetry's 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 - about nuclear war, Vietnam, prisons and racism - have become part of the folklore of the Left, sung and recited at demonstrations and mass rallies. Bloodaxe already publishes Adrian Mitchell's Greatest Hits - his 'forty Golden Greats'. This new book brings together the poems he has written since his last collection, On the Beach at Cambridge, appeared in 1985. It will be followed in 1997 by Heart on the Left: Poems 1953-1984, making all his work available in the year of his 65th birthday
