Amazon.com description: Product Description: Spike Milligan's Hidden Words: Collected Poems is an emotional, surprising collection of tender(ish) moments. The complete poems of Spike Milligan, Hidden Words consists of three individual volumes now collected together (SMALL DREAMS OF A SCORPION, OPEN HEART UNIVERSITY and THE MIRROR RUNNING) as well as a number of previously unpublished poems. The famously funny and rude poems are there, as well as a number of darker poems written during the war. 'Milligan is the Great God to all of us' John Cleese 'The Godfather of Alternative Comedy' Eddie Izzard 'That absolutely glorious way of looking at things differently. A great man' Stephen Fry Spike Milligan was one of the greatest and most influential comedians of the twentieth century. Born in India in 1918, he served in the Royal Artillery during WWII in North Africa and Italy. At the end of the war, he forged a career as a jazz musician, sketch-show writer and performer, before joining forces with Peter Sellers and Harry Secombe to form the legendary Goon Show. Until his death in 2002, he had success as on stage and screen and as the author of over eighty books of fiction, memoir, poetry, plays, cartoons and children's stories.
