Ted Hughes Archive at British Library

Helen Broderick has just posted that the Ted Hughes archive is now open for research and consultation at the British Library. This means that drafts of Birthday Letters and so much more can be scrutinized; which should allow for further assessment of Hughes' poetic relationship with Plath.

Following the progress of the processing of this collection has been very rewarding, no? I do hope more archives do this (and not just the Plath or Hughes ones...I'm an equal-opportunity archivist/archives enthusiast).

Thank you Helen!
