Adrian Mitchell FRSL (24 October 1932 – 20 December 2008) was an English poet, novelist and playwright. A former journalist, he became a noted figure on the British Left. For almost half a century he was the foremost poet of the country's anti-Bomb movement. The critic Kenneth Tynan called him "the British Mayakovsky". Mitchell sought in his work to counteract the implications of his own assertion that, "Most people ignore most poetry because most poetry ignores most people.

Adrian Mitchell, a prolific British poet whose impassioned verse against social injustice, racism and violence was often declaimed at antiwar rallies and political demonstrations, died on Saturday in London. He was 76. He had been hospitalized for pneumonia, which may have brought on a heart attack, said his agent, Nicki Stoddart. Mr. Mitchell, a spiritual descendant of William Blake, Walt Whitman and Bertolt Brecht, combined ferocity, playfulness and simplicity, with a broad audience in mind, in his poetry, plays, novels, song lyrics, children’s books and adaptations for the stage.
Adrian Mitchell also wrote poems and stories for children. His poetry books include his collected poems, Balloon Lagoon (1997) and Daft as a Doughnut (2004), which was chosen by the Poetry Book Society as the year’s best single author collection of children’s poems. He wrote three story books about Baron Munchausen, a series of books about two children who adopt a mammoth, and adaptations of well-known tales such as Hans Christian Andersen’s The Ugly Duckling (1994) and The Steadfast Tin Soldier (1996). Daft as a Doughnut was published in 2004.
