In the controversy surrounding his marriage to Sylvia Plath, we should not forget Ted Hughes' monumental status in the latter decades of the 20th century. From his early glances at nature's savagery, through the shadow-years of Crow, into a middle way full of birds, flowers, insects, farm-life and fishing, to the sudden, unexpected panorama of Birthday Letters, Hughes never ceased to astonish his readers. Greening offers a straightforward guide through the labyrinth of Hughes' Collected Poems, while making an assessement of the poet's reputation nearly a decade after his death.


About the author:

John Greening is a poet and critic. He is the author of Guides to the Poets of the First World War and to W.B. Yeats. His selected poems, Hunts, was published by Greenwich Exchange in 2009.
