Letters of Ted Hughes
Available in Stock
Ted Hughes described letter writing as 'excellent training for conversation with the world'. Christopher Reid has selected nearly 300 letters which show the many facets of Hughes: poet, husband and father, lover of the natural world, and a man for whom literature was a way of being fully alive to experience. Spanning the poet's life, from age 17 to a few days before his death in 1998, the letters are accompanied by Reid's notes on their biographical and literary context.
