Letters of Ted Hughes

Ed. Christopher Reid, Ted Hughes

A giant of 20th century poetry, Ted Hughes (1930–98) was also a prolific letter writer, with a private voice as original and compelling as his verse. This selection ranges from his teenage National Service to his last weeks. The recipients include his family in Yorkshire, his wife Sylvia Plath and lover Assia Wevill, and fellow poets such as Seamus Heaney. Warm, insightful and often humorous, the letters report on domestic life, fishing expeditions, world affairs and the craft of poetry.
