Adrian Mitchell reads his poem “Tell Me Lies about Vietnam”

Andrew Mitchell’s “Tell Me Lies about Vietnam” is probably the most powerful radical poem written in England, or in English, since the time of William Blake.

The more recent massacres in Iraq, Afghanistan, Gaza, Syria, Libya and elsewhere have not produced any English-language poems of this strength. If you know otherwise, please drop us a line and we will be delighted to stand corrected.
