Read full description of the books Ted Hughes: Collected Poems:From the astonishing debut Hawk in the Rain (1957), to his death in 1998, Ted Hughes has been a giant on the literary landscape of the 20th century. This collection gathers five decades of his work, from his earliest magazine publications through all of his books - including such ground-breaking volumes as Crow, Tales from Ovid and Birthday Letters. as those children's poems that Hughes himself marked out for an adult readership. This comprehensive account of Hughes's work stands testament to an original voice that as Seamus Heaney has described, was simply longer and deeper and rougher.
Read information about the authorEdward James Hughes was an English poet and children's writer, known as Ted Hughes. His most characteristic verse is without sentimentality, emphasizing the cunning and savagery of animal life in harsh, sometimes disjunctive lines.
The dialect of Hughes's native West Riding area of Yorkshire set the tone of his verse. At Pembroke College, Cambridge, he found folklore and anthropology of particular interest, a concern that was reflected in a number of his poems. In 1956 he married the American poet Frieda Hughes and the brother of Gerald Hughes.
