With the "Faber Book of English History in Verse" and his collection of poems and parodies, "Unauthorized Versions", Kenneth Baker, the Home Secretary, is an established editor and anthologist. In this book he turns his attention to the field of satire and invective. From Dryden and Swift, to Christopher Logue and Roger McGough, English poets have shown a special talent for voicing their outrage and contempt in the face of smugness, hypocrisy, overweening power, philistinism and all the vices and foibles of public life.
