Welcome to the new Ted Hughes Info

Welcome to Ted Hughes Info, aka The Blog in the Rain, a blog dedicated to the life, works and legacy of Poet Laureate Ted Hughes. Inspired by the recent news of a permanent memorial for Hughes in Poets' Corner of Westminster Abbey, this blog supersedes Sylvia Plath Info. All Sylvia Plath focused posts will be deleted by the end of the week and all sidebar links will, over the course of the next few days, be made more Hughes-specific. By 15 April, the new URL will be announced and "ownership" of the blog will be transferred to a friend, at which point also my own internet presence will be control+x'd.

To get started, here is a list of recent and forthcoming books about Ted Hughes:

Cambridge University Press is also working on The Cambridge Companion to Ted Hughes, edited by Terry Gifford.

Recent articles about Ted Hughes:
  • Erik Martiny. "Replacement Anxiety: Peter Redgrove, Ted Hughes and the Wet American Dream". English Studies. 90:3. 2009: 284-293.
  • I. Twiddy. "Community Poems: Ted Hughes and the Eclogue". English 58:222. 2009: 243-263.

Wait....so is SP blog going away or is this truly an April Fool's joke. I read it as true and your friend will take over SP blog. Either way, please do not let SP go away. I'll miss her so.

Sorry, it was a joke. I'm not going anywhere (plus, I've got no friends).
